It often means that the client side of the socket died unexpectedly (app
is killed via the task manager, host reset, network problem) and the
server CS process cannot send/receive data anymore. Usually, there
should be another firebird.log message (prior to this one) that mentions
a transport protocol error code causing the port to be considered
broken. It could be used to distinguish between application-level issues
and network ones.
