This is an interesting issue and I think @ianswett is correct in pointing out that this could be a real problem for slow devices doing public key operations in an asynchronous manner.

I like @tatsuhiro-t's suggestion to not reset the PTO timer. Maybe we can *always* increment it, regardless of the packet received from peer being ACK-eliciting or not.
