It isn't that I know of.  The fact that it hangs after only 1377 bytes
sounds like it's surely not a network problem.  Please try to debug it
further if you can; I don't have a freebsd system to try to reproduce it
on, although perhaps somebody else on the mailing list would volunteer to
debug it if you can find a publicly-available large file on which this
happens and give precise instructions on how to duplicate it.
