This is from (working) 2.6.16.18:

This is from (failing) 2.6.17-rc6-git2:

Both kernels default to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling == 1,
and 2.6.16.18 works regardless of whether I turn it off/on again.

But 2.6.17-rc6-git2 fails to work with the webserver at www.everymac.com
when /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling == 1. Setting this to 0
"fixes" the problem.

BUG.
