client ignores close of connection?

Hi folks,

we're seeing strange behaviour of mysql connections over network here
lately. Server and client are on different machines. Server (corpdb) is
Mysql 3.23.52 on FreeBSD 4.6.2-RELEASE, client is php application
(portal), Mysql-client 3.23.55, PHP 4.2.3, Apache 1.3.27 on FreeBSD
4.8-RELEASE. The boxes are connected over Cisco Catalyst switch in the
same LAN. There is ipf firewall running on portal, no firewall running
on corpdb.

The problem we're seeing is manifesting as failure to connect to mysql
server from the php application (pconnect function). I did tcpdump
traces on both machines, and my theory what's happening follows:

Imagine long time open and idle connection. Mysql server decides to
close this connection (13:55:06), it sends FIN to client. Client ACKs
the FIN, but not send his FIN as in ordinary TCP connection close.
Server closes the connection on his end, but client is keeping
connection opened on his end. After half hour (14:28:25) client want to
talk to the server and sends packet (P) to server. Server no longer have
opened connection on that port, responds with RST. Client replies with
FIN and returns connection error to PHP.

My question here is: where could be bug? I suspect mysql client.
