        This actually isn't all that surprising, given that KEEPALIVE is an
optional component of TCP.  If you don't know already, KEEPALIVE has,
since the early days of TCP, been the subject of great debate (this is
largely because both sides of the debate have valid reasons reflecting
differing operational scenarios.  In any case, as best I understand it
(just tried to do some fact checking, but my key book is buried),
accepting a KEEPALIVE option, but not actually performing keepalive
may be (interpreted as) valid behavior.  Wish I could be a little more
informative, but I thought I'd at least throw out the warning.
