I find that surprising. TCP doesn't have any mechanism to cope with 
that? Some way to make the inner TCP connection back-off it's retransmit 
intervals more quickly than the outer?
   And would you need a very high packet-loss rate before the problem 
"goes critical"?

But you speak from experience, so I will remember the advice.
