[tproxy] TPROXY behavior when there is no listening socket at the target port

Hi All,

If one has a TPROXY rule that redirects the packets to a local socket
on which there is no one listening then the SYN packets keep getting
dropped silently. Is this expected? Without knowing that this would
happen my natural expectation was that a RST would be sent by local
TCP. Is this by design or a bug?
