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.
