However, I can't understand the dependency upon the kernel version, etc...
Let me steak on this question again. In my experiments I found the
dependency on the keepalive setting for connection on 2.2.17:
mtu 382 + keepalive yes -> loss
mtu 382 + keepalive no -> ok
I made 2 tries for each setting. Does your model of "mss/mtu bug" cover
such a picture? If the answer is "yes", I am almost satisfied. :-)
If this behaviour is not deterministic, and is driven by probability,
does it mean that I can get other results with large number of tests?
