The "EOF" occurred while idle means that syslog-ng sensed incoming data
on a simplex channel, this should only happen if the remote end is
closing the channel.
Please start tcpdump on the given connection and check what kind of
packets go through when the connection is broken.
You should see a FIN packet or a packet data has data payload. This
should never happen.
