It does seem to happen to the same client IPs. Thank you for pointing me into that direction! I can't reproduce it either from my local machines.

Does this always occur with the same client IP? If so, it sounds like an
issue with that client's networking. Namely either a faulty line or,
more likely a forged RST. The latter occurs in a good amount of
corporate firewalls, particularly to manage bandwidth quota-ing (and
happens to be the preferred method the "Great Firewall of China", a.k.a.
the firewall component of China's Golden Shield Project, uses to sever

That'd be my guess, though, and first step - determine if it's always
the same client address or ASN registration.
