Description (partial)

ASA forwards RST packet with non-zero ACK number and ACK flag cleared.
If there is another ASA along the path of this connection, it will drop this RST packet and not clear the connection.
In very specific circumstances (when host initiates another connection and reuses the same ports), the new connection won't be established and the host will receive PSH ACK packet in response to SYN packet.

2 ASAs in path of a connection, RST packet sent immediately after standard connection termination.
