There have been recent changes to CUBIC that may account for this. If
you could repeat your test with more instrumentation, eg "nstat", that
would be very helpful.

nstat > /dev/null
# run one test

Also, if you could take a sender-side tcpdump trace of the test, that
would be very useful (default capture length, grabbing just headers,
is fine).
