No.  Some FIN_WAIT_2s are normal.  As long as they aren't more than around
2*ESTABLISHED there isn't really too much to worry about; some of them are
actually just connections closing, some are leftovers.  However, pepole
with the problem are seeing thousands and thousands of them, and their box
simply will not keep running for more than a day or two before it crashes. 
They would notice if that was happening with 1.1.x.

I have seen no one say that disabling keepalives helps, and I have asked.
