SubjectRe: 2.4.4: Kernel crash, possibly tcp related

I'm having a devil of a time finding the tcpblast sources on the
net, can you point me to where I can get them? The one reference
I saw to get the original sources was:

ftp://ftp.xlink.net/pub/network/tcpblast.shar.gz

But even that directory no longer exists.

The kernel error you see is a gross fatal error, the TCP retransmit
timer has fired yet there are no packets on the transmit queue :-)

My current theory is that tcpblast does something erratic when the
error occurs.
