So far I tested PXELINUX from 4.10-pre12, 4.10-pre9 and 4.10-pre6.
The first two take a long time with a TFTP file not found and
eventually find my file but error out (presumably to kaboom).  The
last takes a long time, does a lot of retransmitted packets (didn't
watch the first two), then eventually loads the file but continues
this behavior for TFTP and HTTP transfers.  This is on VMware Server
2.0.2-203138 in Linux using the DHCP server that comes with VMware
Server, the PXE ROM from VMware Server (info below) and tftpd-hpa 5.0.

HPA, if there's a test you'd like me to try (patch, different -pre,
etc) let me know.
