As well as the suggestion for experimenting with MTU (try both very
large [e.g. 4096] and very small values; see list archives for my
similar problem), you must also ensure that
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_always_defrag has a nonzero value.  (See also
/etc/sysctl.conf for RH's standard control of /proc/sys values.)
