That means the client failed to reply to the break request.
Usually means a network or client driver/software problem.

Get a network trace to be sure.

How do you know there are no problems in the network - have

the middle of a multi-gigabyte transfer. Replacing the switch
with a more expensive one fixed the problem. Most cheap networking
hardware is junk.
