Ken,

I'm not particulary persuaded by the "non-spec" argument. Let them eat
resets. Holding a VC in reserve may be a useful workaround, but it
does not get at the heart of the problem. Granted, if the VC pool
were exhausted in the PSN, there is not much you can do; however,
if the pool were exhausted in the host, a incoming-call packet
could still be passed to the firmware, which could then close a
VC on its own. The same trick could work in the PSN, which would
close the VC with a dirty-smelly reset.

Aitcha glad we have X.25 to bash? We could always gang up on the TCP
reliable-close issue...
