Interesting: I checked the RFC 793 and came to the conclusion that Linux
is correct. ("special allowance should be made to accept valid ACKs" not
must be). Is there another RFC?

Note that either segment length is > 0 or SEG.SEQ != RCV.NXT

But I spotted a second problem, might be minor:

Could you check what happened in line 2066 of this tcpdump?

in line 2064 static (2.2.18-pre17) ack'ed 1583721.
in line 2066 dynamic (Solaris 7.0) sends data although the window is 0
in line 2067 static complains, but now ack is 1583720

2060 16:31:42.879337 eth0 < dynamic.ih.lucent.com.39406 > static.8664:
. 67580:67580(0) ack 1582261 win 1460 (DF)

An off-by-one error somewhere in tcp_send_ack()?
A second packet with the off-by-one ack number is send a few packets
later, all other packets are correct.
