ggate failure in 5.4-STABLE

I have a setup where I mirror disk using a remote ggate disk and a
local disk. If the system is entirel quiescent, the rebuild will
occur flawlessly, but if the system is in use, I often get the
following during a rebuild (on the ggate client):
GEOM_MIRROR: Request failed (error=5). ggate2[WRITE(offset=95143855104, length=8192)]
GEOM_MIRROR: Device m2: provider ggate2 disconnected.
GEOM_MIRROR: Device m2: rebuilding provider ggate2 stopped.
GEOM_MIRROR: Request failed (error=5). ggate2[WRITE(offset=95143863296, length=8192)]
Now... on both the server and the client, the ggate processes are
still running. On the server, there are no kernel log messages.
Specifically, there are no disk media errors.
I gather ggate has no error recovery at all. Could a corrupted
network packet be causing this? What do you all suspect the overall
bit rate of inexpensive GigE hubs is?
