No, it is harmless. What client are you using? I haven't seen these with
OpenSSH's ssh as the client, but have heard of them with other clients.

It is also conceivable that these can occur as a result of a race
condition between a channel closing at the server end while the client
still has data in the pipe and is sending window adjustments.
