Does this occur even when you stop delayed-ack?

I have seen this problem with Linux, but not with FreeBSD.  And
biggest difference between my Linux Machine and FreeBSD machine is
that I stop delayed-ack when it connect with Windows machine, while
on Linux, we have no way to do this for kernel 2.4.2.
