    Date
    Hello!

    Yes, Linux is __very__ not right doing this. RFC requires to accept
    ACK, URG and RST on any segment adjacent to window, even if window
    is zero.

    Solaris also does thing, formally wrong, but it would work if linux
    would be formally correct.

    O-ho-ho... It is difficult bug.
