It's a bug, though:
" 53 ECONNABORTED Software caused connection abort. A connection abort was
caused internal to your host machine."
This isn't a fatal error and shouldn't cause the parent (server) process
to quit. I don't really know what causes ECONNABORTED. I see it seldom and
I guess it's related to ipf.
You should PR this.
