It breaks if the mtu of the path exceeds the buffer size (near enough). I
don't know why yet, but thats definitely the problem. At the moment Im
still trying to find why 1.3.73+ seem to be losing interrupts or doing
other strange things that break SMP with that problem. The quick cure
for ircd is

ifconfig lo mtu 1500
