Right.  But that doesn't cover the case where the FE just goes to sleep
due to idleness.

I don't think it's even that complicated.  It's simply a case of a FE
going to sleep, which, indeed would look to the backend just as if it

I think this is simply a case of the timeout being too long and/or not
enough is being done to determine real idleness.  A non-idle FE should
be very easy to determine.  A FE where somebody has gotten up and walked
away, less so, but a multi-hour timeout for that seems excessive.
