Shutdown listener probably, but I don't know for sure.

Depends what you mean by "worry about" ;)  They're not serious from the
server perspective.  They end up as pages not served on the client side
though, probably a 500-series HTTP error.  So if you have 2 available
proc threads and acceptCount set to 6, you can handle 8 concurrent
requests before these errors start coming up.
