And, apparently, not everyone is affected. I just went from 2.0.22 to
2.0.23 and still do not seem to have that bug:

K:\EXPTS\cider3>ping -l 65510 35.8.64.179

Pinging 35.8.64.179 with 65510 bytes of data:

Request timed out.
Request timed out.

Request timed out.

and:
eyelab:~# cat /etc/motd
Linux 2.0.23. (POSIX).

I'll attach my .config file for my linux kernel so that if anyone wants to
look through it to see what's different between my configuration that
doesn't crash and their version that does. I'm also willing to try
fiddling with my configuration if people want to suggest options that may
cause the crash.
