[syslog-ng] Constant disconnects

I'm running 2.0.0, and have eight remote servers logging to a central
server.  Seven of those servers are running fine; the eighth keeps getting
log messages like this:

Jun 26 10:41:33 kyushu.denmantire.com syslog-ng[6829]: syslog-ng starting
up; version='2.0.0'
Jun 26 10:41:33 kyushu.denmantire.com syslog-ng: syslog-ng startup succeeded
Jun 26 10:41:33 kyushu.denmantire.com syslog-ng[6829]: EOF occurred while
Jun 26 10:41:33 kyushu.denmantire.com syslog-ng[6829]: Connection broken;

My first assumption was a firewall problem, but tcpdump says that data's
getting there:

10:42:49.013423 IP kyushu-vpn-cli.denmantire.com.37759 >
buran.denmantire.com.5142: S 1168830611:1168830611(0) win 5840 <mss
1460,sackOK,timestamp 316509070 0,nop,wscale 2>

win 5792 <mss 1460,sackOK,timestamp 39334539 316509070,nop,wscale 7>

Any ideas what could be causing the connection to drop - but only on this

Thanks much,
