Error with Docker image 5.1 and Python driver


I'm inserting some data into the DB using parallel request, using Python and joblib. The querys are pretty simple, I have an ID for a parent node, and a list of IDs for the child nodes. The query matches the parent node and using UNWIND goes through the child node list and insert them with a relation to the parent node. Nothing too fancy.

Now, at some point at random I get this little error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ubuntu/anaconda3/envs/DNI/lib/python3.10/site-packages/neo4j/io/", line 55, in _yield_messages
    buffer.receive(sock, 2)

    n = sock.recv_into(view[self.used:end], end - self.used)
OSError: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

OSError: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor

And I have no idea what it means. I do know that if a I use the Neo4j Desktop this error doesn't happen so maybe the issue is with the Docker image. I start the container like this:

docker run --name neo4j -d -p7474:7474 -p7687:7687 --restart unless-stopped -v=/home/ubuntu/neo4j/data:/data -v /home/ubuntu/data:/var/lib/neo4j/import -v /home/ubuntu/neo4j/logs:/var/lib/neo4j/logs \
 -e NEO4J_AUTH=neo4j/test -e NEO4J_dbms_logs_http_enabled=true -e NEO4J_dbms_security_procedures_unrestricted=apoc.text.* \
 -e NEO4JLABS_PLUGINS='["graph-data-science","apoc"]' -e NEO4J_server_memory_heap_initial__size=3400m -e NEO4J_server_memory_heap_max__size=3400m \
 -e NEO4J_server_memory_pagecache_size=1700m neo4j:latest

I'm using the Community edition.

Any help is appreciated.
