Remote Window Size

Hey all,

Hopefully this is an easy question. In channels.c what is 
c->remote_window being used for? Does it correspond to c->local_window 
on the remote? Does it indicate free space in a buffer? If so which one? 
I'm trying to nail down a stalling situation.

On the client I've put in a debug line into channel_input_window_adjust 
to report on the size of the c->remote_window. I've noticed that when 
the performance drops and seems to stall this value doesn't move much at 
all. So I'm wondering if this represents a buffer on the remote reaching 
a maximum size and waiting to drain.
