Queue-size was default 100k. I have a problem of disconnecting clients after
2...20 second. One client drops connection even when he is the single
client. Server link was far far far from saturation, and another client has
not difficulties. I connected to unhappy client using video conferencing
software -- no jams, good quality. Error level was 3, so I can not determine
reason. Now I increased queue-size to 1M -- still no problems.

I still think to change log level of  FORCED disconnection to warn, but even
changing to info will be appreciated.
