This basically means that the connection was dropped at the remote end
without closing it down properly. Usually it relates to a client that
crashes or is aborted in the middle of a dialogue with the server. I
see numerous instances of that message here, and nobody's complaining,
so I figure it can't be serious -- particularly when compared to stuff
people *do* complain about. ;-)

Harris, eh? Maybe you could talk Baseview Products into installing a
Squid server so my wife will have better web access at work... :-)
