Help me understand what server-aborted connection means, at least for
connections that the web server is aware of.

I guess it is a server-aborted connection when the server closes
before the client during lingering close.  If the server encounters an
I/O error writing to the client it is assumed to be client-aborted,
but the client may not see it that way.
