DetectLostPackets() is called when an ACK is received that acknowledges new packets or the loss detection timer fires, which I believe lines up with the text.

Why would it be called in the anti-deadlock case?  The only two loss triggers are packet threshold and time.  Packet threshold requires a new ACK, and the loss time is only set/changed when a new ACK is received.
