Flaky connection with latest CVS version

I changed from an older CVS-version (~3 weeks old) to a recent one to test
the new 32bit tallies.
The good news is that I no longer get INFDROP events during larger file transfers,
the bad news is that the connection seems flaky.

AFAIK I haven't seen this problem before the 32bit tallies change.
Jouni, do you think that this change is responsible for the errors?
