I agree. I believe we already covered this here on the list a while
ago, didn't we?
I seem to recall it's caused by UAs optimistically opening (multiple?)
connections to origin servers, and then closing them after they go
unused. I.e. with no data transferred (i.e. 400/408 depending on
I suspect you see these at HTTP->HTTPS redirection as that's the point
at which the UA notices that it's no longer accessing the HTTP://site/
, and closes the unused/cached/fallow optimistic HTTP connections it
had opened in /case/ the user continued browsing over HTTP.
