As a test, I had netbsd installed on an old starmax 3000/200 with an rtl 10/100 card and an advansys 9xxU scsi card, and was doing throughput testing, ftping and nfs'ing files and directories back and forth. Last test was ftp and nfs transfers from the netbsd box to a Mac (10/100) and an AIX box (10bt) respectively on a 165MB file. Halfway through the transfer, the TCP stack didn't send any more packets. An attempt to ping from the netbsd box gave an error about "buffers full" or something like that.

Just decided to report this; as it is, my netbsd environment is gone, so I can't repro effectively, which basically means this bug report is worthless. However, I figured someone would like to know.
