Some versions of Linux wrongly generate an RST in response to a bad TCP
checksum. (Wrongly because the bad checksum is telling you you can't
trust the TCP header and payload, so why generate an RST using values
from the header?) I've had problems in the past with simply bad cabling
exercising this bug.
