Logging suggests that the service is really not generating duplicate SEND_OKs.

From the logs:

Oct 28 12:15:17-441430 transport-1489 DEBUG Received SEND request 181104 for `W1CZ' and first message of type 82 and total size 704
Oct 28 12:15:17-441763 transport-1489 DEBUG It took us 313 µs to send 704/704 bytes to W1CZ (1, tcp)
Oct 28 12:15:17-441872 transport-api-1481 DEBUG Receiving SEND_OK message, transmission to W1CZ succeeded.
Oct 28 12:15:18-180365 transport-1489 WARNING It took us 279 s to send 648/0 bytes to W1CZ (-1, tcp)
Oct 28 12:15:18-180803 transport-api-1481 DEBUG Receiving SEND_OK message, transmission to W1CZ failed.

This suggests that we might be dealing with a SEND_OK confirmation from a *previous* connection to the peer. If the message can sit idle/stale in the transport plugin for like 5 minutes (and on top of that failed to be transmitted in this case...), it is plausible that the connection was dropped and re-established.

handle_send_transmit_continuation was fixed to only send SEND_OK if the connection is "up", but that doesn't mean it is *still* up, it could be that it is *again* up with a different session (!).

Inspection of the longer log suggests the pattern (unusually high delay, failed transmission) is the same in 4/4 cases of the assertion being triggered.
