OpenWRT insanity, shame and ignorancy

I have been hit by a idiotic, unreasonable, insane and stupid setting in OpenWRT:


Well what does it mean? Simple thing: Every long-lasting connections breaks after one hour. No matter whether I have TCP keepalive on, because TCP keepalive timeout defaults to 7200 seconds.

In practice you will see this:
brill@tapir ~ $ ssh
Linux milhouse 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 18 23:13:22 UTC 2011 x86_64

Keep keep your hands off this server!
Nikdo tu na nic nesahejte!

brill@milhouse:~$ Write failed: Broken pipe

brill@tapir ~ $

There was a flame on this topic on OpenWRT forum:

And the result is: invalid, wontfix, fuckyourself.

Motherfuckers. They break everything. God... You can sacrifice filesystem, give up serial port, GPIO, LED diodes, whatever, but keep firewall working normally when you are building network appliance you idiots!
