The effect is more pronounced for smaller responses, for any response
using an odd number of packets. The last odd packet will be stalled
because the client needs to timeout before it will send an ACK for a
single segment (it's waiting for the second segment).

It doesn't matter how many requests you have, but the impact can be
complicated on persistent connections.
