    I've been told that the MTU for the CISCO was 1500. I think that's
    what I had it configured to when we got it recently, but then I lost
    that in a recent disc crash and then I set my MTU to 255 (what is was
    for our old Annex). This would also explain why I've only noticed this
    problem recently.

    Anyway, I've set machine A to have MTU=1500 for the SLIP link, and
    these TCP stalls seem to have gone away.
