I see what you're describing now, with the kvm set with 2 CPUs. It appears to 
be a bug caused by the recent patch for connection_hangup() processing. 
Running slapd with -d15 in your test shows that a connection is closed shortly 
after being established and becoming readable. The bug is (probably) that we 
queued the reader but processed the hangup immediately, thus closing the 
connection before the reader executes. I'm not exactly sure why this is 
causing the problem on your test, since it looks like your client is closing 
the socket before waiting for the reply. But certainly this is the right area.
