[erlang-questions] Erlang message passing delay after abnormal network disconnection

Hi, everyone.  I've read forward in the thread ... and am wondering if
there's a simpler cause?  Since the default distribution mechanism rides
on top of TCP, the delay might be caused by TCP's exponential back-off
when packet loss is encountered?  A quick packet capture could verify
this theory: there would be a big delay after the network partition is
fixed (i.e. plug cable back in, "ifconfig {IFACE} up", whatever) and
before the next packet (in either direction) is transmitted.
