It looks like something outside postgres or pg_receivexlog did
terminate the connection. pg_receievexlog noticed it was closed,
whereas postgres waited for the timeout (but probably would've noticed
if it had actually had some other data to send maybe?). Do you have
some iptables connection tracking or something like that which could
be interfering?
