SubjectPing with a 65510 bytes pack

Hi,

I'm new to this list and so I don't know if you already have
talked about this problem.
When a friend of mine, using a Win95 workstation, issued the ping
command using a pack of 65510 bytes and addressed to my Linux 2.0.22, it
simply rebooted. On the second time he issued that command, all the
process stopped because of a general protection 000, including the agetty
processes.
This problem was reported on comp.unix.aix (I think) regarding to
AIX (obviously), but I tried on a Linux system and it worked (my system
stopped).

Best Regards from :
