This makes sense, because the kernel in 1.1b17 now includes the
ng_pptpgre.c/.h from -STABLE, which has a new parameter for the
ng_pptpgre node to turn windowing on/off, whereas with the previous
version (1.1b16) a preliminary patch was used that made the use of
windowing dependant on the delayed-ack option. So actually,
delayed-ack is not the problem, but windowing. This is consistent
with earlier problems with windowing in conjunction with PPTP VPN,
and is probably another proof that the ng_pptpgre windowing
implementation is broken.
This means I'll disable windowing for the WAN PPTP client altogether
Thanks for testing!
