Sometimes the states don't get cleanly closed upon disconnect, which
causes 619's for the reason you mentioned (the firewall still thinks
the other client is connected).  Manually clearing the state table
will work around that.  Depending on what kind of applications you
run, that might be a major problem, or might be transparent.

I'm not aware of any good fix for the problem.  From what I've seen,
it just seems to happen periodically.  It's never been a major issue
for me, so I haven't really looked into it.
