Terminal periodically hangs

Ssh connects and authenticates correctly, but sessions periodically hang for 
minutes at a time.

This behaviour also occurs when sftp is used to transfer files - the 
connection will periodically hang, and then resume transfer. No problem 
piping rsync over ssh, though (rsync -e ssh ack ugh:/home/foo/ack).

Both ssh and sftp problem occur when server is accessed over internal LAN or 
external DSL/modem connections.

This sounds similar to the "[Bug 124] Terminal hangs when data is streaming 
to it..." (only that was on a different architecture). Was that issue ever 

Server is running RedHat 7.2. Both the openSSH 3.0.2p1-1 i386 RPM and a 
compile of the March 3rd snaphsot exhibit symptoms.

Any help would be appreciated - I'm hoping that this is a known issue...
