If you look at the logs I've linked, you can see that the "dropping" happens in software where the client reports a normal soft disconnection. This has nothing to do with a hard socket failure as far as I can tell.

A 2 MB PNG image isn't a very heavy load for a modern computer. If I were trying to optimize startup, I'd look elsewhere, such as eliminating unnecessary services. The fade-in for this image is going to be a fixed delay anyway.
