Connection: handling for HTTP/1.0

I have the Connection: header handling for HTTP/1.0 in place now
and it looks like it has lowered the "bad connection attempts" rate
a bit, but it is still not zero.

At the current request rate of approx 100/sec I see one or two
"bad connection attempts" per second.

I'm somewhat leaning towards the theory that it is a FreeBSD or
network driver tuning issue.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
