This is from the FAQ file:

Q: When I poll a node, even though the session is competely correct,
ifcico considers the call as failed (apparently, there is a problem
with a SIGHUP coming too early...).
A: Some fidonet mailers do not finish Zmodem session cleanly, with ZFIN.
If they don't, there is *no* way to distinguish accidental hangup
from the session completion. Ifcico prefers to be suspitions and
interpret unclear situation as failure.
