	Fair enough ;) Let’s get the soldering iron out and see whether I can replace the phi with a 10Mbit one ;), mmmh, maybe I should run 10BASE5 and do away with all that modernist “hub” and “switch” witch craft while I am at it
Joking aside, I believe the issue only occurred on loooong RTTs so it will only be a minor issue in real life, but still it would be nice if cake would not introduce the possibility for remote parties to make my router OOM/reboot ;). I might be odd, but I prefer a hit in throughput to a forced reboot any day ;)

Best Regards
