Oh, whoops!

I think this might be due to the ack interval. While packet  
transmissions in terms of sendDone completes after an ACK wait period  
(34 symbols, or 500us), the actual radio transmission does not include  
the ACK wait period. The values I see there suggest that 3->1 is  
starting 200us before 1->0 issues a sendDone. So it could be that 3->1  
is occuring *after* the transmission 1->0 but before the ack wait  
period has completed.
