Thanks. I see now that ECN stands for Explicit Congestion Notification, and
indeed this is one of the options in "networking options". I had looked at
this, and obviously left it set to N. I didn't get the connection between
the acronym ECN and Explicit Congestion Notification. The Help button for
xconfig gives the RTFM, "No Help ..." response.

Perhaps a documentation patch for the help response which warns of the
possible problems with having ECN turned on would be appropriate.
