I've seen this happen quite a bit after a fragmented packet is
re-assembled and put through the de-tunneler and then passed back
down to be 're-received'. This is especially the case when bridging
was in the mix too. I sent a patch to Alan to fix this with the
bridging for 2.0 a couple of months ago.
- It looks like a similar problem here.
