Thanks for your comment.

I hate to be disagreeable, but the app and postgres are running
on the same computer.  The app is a java program using jdbc to
issue postgres commands.  However, I see the same message via
psql (on the same machine).

Most likely what is happening is that you have a firewall between your
app and your db server that is closing idle connections after x
minutes.  Could be other things, like crashing clients, etc...  Hard
to say without more evidence.
