Thank you!! Someone who knows what I'm talking about. I posted a while
ago with a very detail bug-description that inlcluded kernel build
options, ipfwadm settings and a tcpdump session. Basically, this is all
exactly what I get. In addition, IP forwarding/masquerading is broken and
network speed (both ethernet and ppp) is very, very slow. I had to drop
back to 2.0.25. I don't have much more to say than "Yes, this is a
legitimate problem with 2.1.9+".
