Thanks Juha

That makes it somehow easier to understand my capture. My Kamailio must
then have detected a broken TCP connection, though I cannot see why in the
capture, neither in the log, but I only run on debug level 2.
It receives a 200 OK on port 37148, and then establishes 37150 to reply
with an ACK.

However two seconds before receiving the 200 OK, there are some spurious
retransmissions and out of order on 37148. Perhaps this has caused Kamailio
to deem the connection bad, but it still receives data on it.
Now I assume that the providers server (Which also is flying Kamailio)
should detect the new port, and continue using that. I got a trace from the
provider, where there is no disturbance. Thus the server thinks that the
connection is OK.

Now my next question is, what makes a Kamailio detect this change?
Is it a problem that I only rewrite To and From in the INVITE, thus the ACK
contains some other values.

It is also a bit strange that I get this error exactly, the same place in
the conversation every time I make a call. Somehow I suspect some NAT
timeout in the router. (it is not carrier grade NAT).
Can I do anything to prevent a NAT timeout from the client side?

Another thing. I assume that sending my internal port in the From field, or
any kind of advertising, should be ignored by the server.
