Correct, because it only checks:

         if ( $remaining > 0 ) {

Not sure why it's ok for the Content-Length to be less than the actual
content and not the other way around.

Regardless, my question was just is this the level of an error?  Do we
really care if a request is disconnected?

I can downgrade the message to a warn in my logging code to avoid getting
emails about it every few hours.
