ok, will try those.

ok, i will first wait for it to trigger on a box and will do the tcpdump
session (and /proc/net/tcp output), then i'll continue the tests with
this done in the rc.local:

echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_frto

and will see whether the hung connections still occur. The cycle of
testing will be very slow i suspect.
