    SWS avoidance makes us not send packets. See this quote in an email
    from John Heffner the other week:

    To elaborate on my earlier mail. my hypothesis is that somehow the web
    server beleives that we sent a winscale of 0. In such a case, when we try
    to advertise our initial 4*MSS (5840 bytes) of window, with a window scale
    of 3 we use a value of 730 in the window field. All sender SWS avoidance
    (RFC1122) tests will fail, most notably 1 (because we already advertised
