Aside from bugs, there are a couple of reasons for retransmissions (this
is a generic comment, not specific to the VAX code):

1. timeout awaiting ACK leads to retransmissions

2. ACK fails to arrive at all (then see 1 above).

Do you know what the path was between the source/sink of this
TCP connection? Were there any long delay nets (e.g. SATNET)?
Network congestion? Overloaded gateways?
