Subject: cipe_xmit packet length problem

Francisco, 

You posted a message to the cipe mailing list in Dec of 2000 asking about
this error.  There were no answers to your post.  Did you ever find a
solution?

I am getting these errors when I do bridging + cipe.  The link seems to work
fine on an isolated test network.  When I move to the production lan with
heavier traffic I get this message in my /var/log/messages logs and all over
my screen.  Also in /var/log/messages is the error: cipe_xmit reentrance.
Below is an excerpt.  Any ideas or solutions?

Also the bridge does not seem to pass icmp traffic.  When doing a ping
across the bridge I see the arp request on the far side but not any
response.  It has only taken me about three weeks to get this far...maybe by
Christmas I can tell my boss it is working.

Sorry for the digression, I'm a little frazzled.  Any thoughts, comments, or
solutions will be greatly appreciated.

TIA
