SACK is hairy and I can certainly believe there are bugs. But I have looked at tcpdump traces (with tcpdump2xplot) and seen sack blocks and retransmits that look ok. I am still a bit suspicious of whether the choice of how much and what to retransmit under multiple losses is exactly correct. But I can't make an argument, even incoherent, that it's wrong.
