NetBSD-1.0/i386 at this end...

I'm playing with PPP to a Sun (pppd-2.1.2b) and generally all is well
(except for what looks like a bug with LCP echo processing).

However, twice in the last few minutes now, a telnet session via the
PPP link has "stopped" with the data apparently sitting in my tcp

root:2986$ netstat -n | head
Active Internet connections
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q  Local Address          Foreign Address        (state)
tcp        0     15      ESTABLISHED
tcp        0      0    ESTABLISHED
tcp        0      0    ESTABLISHED
tcp        0      0      ESTABLISHED

Those 15 bytes have been there for several minutes. Pings to the host
in question, and all other telnet etc sessions are functioning happily
(this mail should fly down there in a sec...)

So, why would I have data stuck in a send-Q ?
