The packet is not out of order, according to tcpdump.

Note that the receiver reacts to incoming packet, sending a DUPACK, so
its not a backlogdrop.

tcpdump trace is really incomplete, I asked tcpdump -vv but got nothing
from chptx, assuming this is a real name.

packet might be rejected because of a zero receiver window, who knows.

I might search in my basement this crystal ball I might have.
