There is another quirk that seems related to retransmissions.  I forget the 
details.  I'm pretty sure there is bug report on it.

If I interpret "WiFi" as lost packets, that fits in with the other collected 

My guess is that this new quirk is just what happens with "peers" when lots of 
packets get lost and we just haven't seen it enough before now to get reported.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
