SSH file mounting is dropping and crashing

I have a directory that I mount a remote file system into, using SSHFS.
I have a script which creates and then removes a directory in the
mounted folder every minute so as to hopefully keep the SSH connection
However, randomly the connection still drops out - sometimes it's
happened within minutes of the connection being established, other times
it can happily stay connected for a few days.
The big problem when this happens is that the directory to which I mount
then becomes totally unusable unless I reboot the server. By unusable, I
mean it can't be accessed, changed, removed or anything. This hasn't
been a huge problem (annoyance aside...) all the time I've been at work
5 days a week, but with being about to go on leave for a fortnight, it's
going to be a bit more of a pain....don't want to keep SSHing onto the
server from the mountains whilst skiing to reboot the server!
An ls -alh shows the following:
d????????? ? ? ? ? ? mount
Once I reboot it's fine and ownership is back with me. Have obviously
tried editing / removing it as root, but still no luck.
Any idea what is wrong?
