Probably it is. However, can you run the gdb commands I mentioned
in previous post, to make us sure.

I think so. A tcpserver(8) in given configuration.

The discussed problem is a race between remote client closing TCP
connection (may be resetting?), and local software performing
setsockopt() system call on the same socket.
It may happen that this particulat server has to deal with clients
that drop the connection randomly, and other servers don't. That's
why other servers are stable.

You can try it.
And don't forget to run gdb commands, and see what is the actual
socket option that causes the problem.
Totus tuus, Glebius.
