I'm running RH on my 2650 and haven't seen anything like this.  Are all
the closed ssh connections coming from the same box? or the same
network?  I'd be more likely to suspect a router in between cutting off
the connection than the machine itself.

I haven't run debian in ages, but its also possible something on the
machine might be killing your processes, although I can't imagine what.
