It is hard to tell anything from an the un-annotated network capture.  I
was hoping something might stick out...

I probably won't chase this any further, but as a suggestion on how to
read the captures, I often capture in ethereal with 'update packets in
real time', and note the packet sequence number when error messages (or
success) appears on the client.  You can then start comparing, and
looking for 'last error packet' etc.
