It means that the server wasn't able to provide "quick" invalidations
because a client was disconnected too long.  The message isn't very
well worded, even aside from the misspelling.

Normally, in this situation, a client would then perform a full cache
verification, which puts lots of pressure on the server, possibly
making it unresponsive.  There's a client option
"drop-cache-rather-than-verify" that can prevent this. Arguably, this
is a "don't be stupid" option that should be enabled by default.
