[j-nsp] Odd TCP Timestamp

It seems that the TCP timestamp is on by default in Juniper boxes. I see
something strange happening there.

It seems Juniper keeps the Time Stamp Echo Reply value that it receives in
the first SYN packet, and does not update upon receiving newer and fresher
packets from a remote end. It thus always ends up sending the same Timestamp
value in all its TCP segments.

Is this a known issue?
