I have been using 1400 for CIPE MTU since January.? See archives from
that time for why, in a thread with subject "MTU weirdness".? (Short
explanation: Some piece of routing hardware between myself and many
[not all] of my destinations stopped doing fragmentation properly.)

Because my machine is also the home network's ipmasq gateway, I have
gone further than merely tuning down CIPE's MTU, to tuning down the
MTU on every host in the home network.? Changing this for a Linux host
is as simple as (under RH) adding "MTU=1400" to
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 or (under Win9x) getting one
of the registry key things you can find on the net to be imported
which will change MTUs.? I can supply one of those, if you need.
