IIRC, the RST would be generated if the client got an unexpected
response/timeout from the server.

Linux kernels 2.6.x are known to have an improved tcp implementation -
maybe that would help.

Could you tell me the command line args that you are using for the
jvm?  And did you notice the memory/cpu utilization of both apps
during the test?

You could post the source and I could try it out on my machines and
see if the problem can be reproduced.
