...I think we can drop ssh from suspect lists for now.

Your proc/net/tcp capture on houba was perhaps made too late? ...The 
connection is missing already.

But anyway, at least the problem is visible... It seems that 3998:4046 
gets never retransmitted, not even by RTO which seems very very strange
to me... And after this: 23:21:56.154269 IP > . ack 3998 win 379 ... sack 3 
{4238:4286}{4142:4190}{4046:4094}> also fast retransmit should have 
already triggered. ...I'll look more into this if I can figure it out 
from the current traces but it'll take a while.
