Hmmmm. That seems somewhat odd that it'd help. It'd be interesting to look 
into why (that setting is necessary to keep at 0 for e.g. very large files 
(streaming media for example, or YouTube proxy/caching). Or alternatively, 
keep it very large (certainly much larger than 120s). What did you set it to ?

What is the problem having connections in CLOSE_WAIT anyways? The kernel 
should clean that out after some time (like 120s or some such), no?
