I was wondering where exactly you had noticed the hangups. Perhaps the REQ/
ACK pair right after SND or REC is overkill. Removing it, i.e. changing the protocol


    Receive = SND ACK* filename ACK* | NAK* {data* ACK} REQ ACK* | NAK*


    Receive = SND filename ACK* | NAK* {data* ACK} REQ ACK* | NAK*

would bring the protocol more in line with the one used in module Net.
