 It seems to indeed be a problem with incomplete packets. In particular
 something called TCP slow start. This is where when an initial connection is
 made between client and server the number of packets sent at once is slowly
 built up. This is where I ran into problems with my little Solaris server on
 the very large BBC WAN (Probably the largest single Network in the world
 with up to 50,000 devices connected to it). The default network set up for a
 Solaris 2.6 box is for a small LAN of about 10 units. Basically I had to do
 a little "ndd" tweaking of the device drivers in particular "ndd -set
 /dev/tcp tcp_slow_start_initial 2" to increase the number of initial packets
 sent out as there is an packet ACK problem in windows 95/IE 3.01 with HTTP
 1.0 protocols.
 It seems to have cured most of the problem.
