SSL Log concerns "unclean shutdown"

Hi All

my SSL logs are full of the following lines
Connection to child * closed with unclean shutdown

I have searched extensivally and cannot find out what this means.

Can any one give me a hand to understand this error message.

SSL seems to be working fine in both IE and Firefox, but I would hate to think of all the orders I am missing if there is a consistant fault somewhere

Also if you can help in the above I am sure the following will be easy

my secure log file has only the following entries
[15/Jun/2004:21:08:16 +0930] + + +
[15/Jun/2004:21:08:16 +0930] + + +
[15/Jun/2004:21:08:17 +0930] + + +
[15/Jun/2004:22:57:16 +0930] - - -
[15/Jun/2004:22:57:18 +0930] - - -

The log format is ...
"%t %{version}c %{cipher}c %{clientcert}c"

Thats about as useles as ***** on a bull
is there a reason nothing is showing up?
whats the difference between - - - and + + +

Thanks Guys I know someone out there has an idea whats going on...

From what I recall... there is a specific way your supposed to end an SSL session. Also from what I recall, as usual... Internet Explorer could care less.

Nothing to worry about.
