Well, its not always the client sending it. Could be a NAT device
somewhere hitting some timeout or connnection limit and aborting idle

If it is occuring a lot then it might be worth investigating. Having
long live TCP connections just sitting around unused for very long
periods is not very good for resource utilization. Hardware device
tables overflowing in a NAT or router device is also pretty bad.
