When using a TCP connection against a Windows Client we see the
> following behavior:  the window size is negotiated to 64K, the server
> (NetBSD) dumps a large buffer (100K+) to the client (MS Windows).
> The first two or three packet transmissions are back-to-back, (no
> delay between data packets or ms windows ack) Windows (microsoft)
> sends an acknowledge.  NetBSD then holds off about a millisecond,
> then begins dumping data again, it gets two or three packets out and
> MSWindows sends an ack, again NetBSD holds off a millisecond and
> begins transmitting again.
