This patch suppresses logging of connection aborts, which are quite normal, especially with prefetching. I got them pretty frequently with Django's runserver. They are mostly harmless but distracting:

This solution -- isolating that particular exception -- seems a bit hackish and special-casish. Any other way to solve the problem at a different level in the code?

Solution is too hackish, so I'm closing.

There is no other solution. And it is all about the special case --- clients can abort web connections at will and it is normal behavior. We see the 10053 "error" on Windows because Python's implementation on Windows propagates it to the code, while Unix implementation eats it up. BTW, it was introduced by a Python update (Python 2.4.2?). Before that it worked identically on both platforms --- that's why we didn't see it before.

I am reopening it "just in case". It's up to you to make a final call. At the end of the day it is harmless.
