    Hello Andi.

    Thanks for your response but your guess is (at least partially)
    wrong. This is happening with HP-UX systems.

    I'm used to have a couple of dtterm/hpterm windows on our HP-UX
    systems. After uprading to 2.0.34 they are closed after some
    period of inactivity. This is probably related to keep alive handling.

    I remember i saw a message somewhere (which i can't find anymore)
    that this is a side effect of a 2.0.34 TCP change. The quick fix
    was to replace the return value at the end of a tcp_* function.
    However i can't remember the details and this is getting
    annoying ...

    Thanks for your help
