Anybody familiar with the retransmission code?

It seems to hang occasionally.  A wild guess, there is some backoff code in 
there that increases the retransmission timer.  That's good.  I'm guessing 
that my problem is that the timer gets too big.  It's not actually hanging, 
just running very very very slowly.

I have a script that grabs lots of data from a remote site.  It should date a 
few minutes.  It took 12 hours.  That's 83K slots from the mru list.

/usr/local/bin/ntpq -nc "mru mincount=1000 sort=avgint"

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
