Thanks for the message!  You're right; this wasn't a very good log
message, and we think we've made it better in 0.0.9 and (the
latest release).

You would see this message if a connection has to be closed, but we
still had some data to write on the connection.  This can happen when
an application closes a connection without reading all of its data,
and for many other reasons.  It's nothing to worry about, and it
doesn't produce a [warn] message in the latest releases.

Hope this helps,
Nick Mathewson
