ah- it's just the SYN that applies to -- from rfc 793, p31:

  In line 2 of figure 7, TCP A begins by sending a SYN segment
  indicating that it will use sequence numbers starting with sequence
  number 100.  In line 3, TCP B sends a SYN and acknowledges the SYN it
  received from TCP A.  Note that the acknowledgment field indicates TCP
  B is now expecting to hear sequence 101, acknowledging the SYN which
  occupied sequence 100.

in that case, no idea :)

looks like the client certainly thinks things should be ack-ed further into the 
stream. wireshark is having one of its (many) "moments" on my mac so i can't 
actually open the file again (opening wireshark currently causes it to fork 
bomb the mac with processes that activity monitor reports as "wireshark" and ps 
reports as "dumpcap"...).
