That's right. It is supposed to try to reconnect until there's no more
space in the replication log buffers, according to

I think the slave never fails over automatically, even if it detects
that it has lost contact with the master. It has to be told to do so.
See http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.10/adminguide/cadminreplicfailover.html,
which says:

  There is no automatic failover or restart of replication after one of
  the instances has failed.
