SubjectRe: 2.6.17: networking bug??
Mmm.  I notice that 2.6.17 has a new sysctl related
to this stuff: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_workaround_signed_windows

It makes no difference whatsoever for me here
when varied while /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling==1.

The site www.everymac.com is still not browseable until
setting /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling===0.

There's one other difference I see in the tcpdump traces.
The first packets from each trace below show different
values for "wscale". The old (working) kernels use "wscale 2",
whereas 2.6.17 uses "wscale 6". In both cases, the value
seen in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_adv_win_scale is 2.

This is from (working) 2.6.16.18:

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

Something is broken somewhere.
