Connection View - no connection initialization

In the results:

There is no initialization of connection in third pipe. What does it mean?

I see similar results quite often and would like to understand this. Anybody has an idea?

If this was a test run with IE9, then the answer is here:

No, it was run with IE8, but thanks for the link. I didn’t know about this feature of IE9.

It’s REALLY hard to say without knowing more context. If the waterfall is from the second step in a multi-step script then it’s also possible that it is re-using a connection from an earlier page load that is still open. If it’s from a straight-url test then it would have to be a bug in the capturing (and if you could shoot me a test URL I can try to track it down).

Thanks,
