That does sound strange to me. I'll have to set up a test bed to emulate
your setup. Try setting up two CIPE boxes on the same ethernet segment and
see if it happens. Also, are there any routers between the two ? I rely on
small MTUs so there may be an issue with intervening routers. It's most
likely a hidden flaw in my CIPE implementation, though.
