There's this weird edge case where you might run out of cwnd, because PADDING counts towards in-flight but is not ack-eliciting, but it seems safe to ignore that one. If you don't receive and acknowledgment for that many packets right at the beginning of the connection, something is going seriously wrong anyway.
