Not quite. The newsserver "jupiter" complains that as server process
while receiving news ("innd:") the connection to the feed site
"news.changed.net" on channel "24" failed because of a broken pipe.
Server-server connections are assumed to be stable even if they aren't
always. Jupiter may have lost news from news.changed.net because of this.
