I checked the thread and unfortunately did not find anything conclusive.
In my case, my dom0 seems to work fine and even the domU is still alive
-- everything back to order after the mount recovered (typically in a
couple of minutes).

According to the traffic I captured, server is kind of busy and keep
sending ZeroWindow for a while
and the client in domU reset the connection after retrying 6 times
within 15 seconds.
I'm not sure if this is a correct client behavior while the server is
doing wrong.
But why does this only happen in domU client?

Please find the traffic log in the attached file.
I've captured the traffic from both server and domU.
And it appears that there is no mismatch.
