To be fair, Aryeh - your report was of a sort that indicated it could very well 
have been an upstream issue. Torrents in particular are unpredictable critters, 
and - given you've said you had only the one box - I don't see how/where you 
could have emulated that 'locally'.

As to the re(4) 'issue' - we are scp'ing seriously large container files over 
local switches internal to the rack, AND both carrier-grade and sod-awful 
residential cable-modem links, csuping often, etc --- all  w/o *any* of the 
reported 're' problems (so far).

7-CURRENT of September ISO, 7-BETA1 with the Realtek NIC, 6.2 with the BGE NIC 
at one end, plus the odd fxp or rl NIC at 10/100 under 7-BETA1, &-BETA3, 
8-CURRENT. We do not presently have hardware to do re to re.  Maybe next week.

Meanwhile - more accurate / detailed research & reporting, and a bit less 
sarcasm would be useful.
