Unhappy CLOSE_WAIT timeout

We have a client server kind of application where the client establishes tcp connections to the server. For some reason if the server closes the connections, the client is not closing at its end.
We see all these connections in the CLOSE_WAIT state. They remain in the CLOSE_WAIT state forever( till the client is killed).
Other OS has ways to set a timeout for the CLOSE_WAIT.we can set using ndd in Solaris to set the timeout after which the conneciton will automatically close and the CLOSE_WAIT entries go. We would like to set the similar timeout in Linux. Does anybody know how?
Please help!!
