SubjectTCP tunnel and forwarder broken since pre 1.99.10

Hi, I'm using a somewhat strange setup, which I first configured with
1.99.9, where it worked perfectly. The setup is this.

The network netmask (I only have two machines
at home .65 and .66 .65 has the modem), is officialy gatewayed by the machine

In the network is IP tunneled to my ppp dialin address. On
my dial in machine I have a tunnel to routed through my modem
and my default route is set to via the tunnel.

In 1.99.9 this all worked fine. Since 1.99.10 THe gateway machine still works
fine, but the second machine can only transfer so much before a connection
hangs. This is 100% repeatable. If I telnet to my news server, type list
the output always stops at the same place (after transfering 36227bytes).

Once a connection has stopped, it appears that both ends just loose interest,
netstat shows both ends in the established state with nothing in the send/recv
queues on either end. The last bytes to pass the ppp link according to tcpdump

02:29:06.682247 > ip-proto-196 500
02:29:06.682247 > ip-proto-196 500
02:29:07.082247 > . ack 36418
win 31744 (encap)
02:29:07.502247 > ip-proto-196 500
02:29:07.502247 > ip-proto-196 500
02:29:07.902247 > . ack 36878
win 31744 (encap)

The problem seems to be only in the gateway machine. With 1.99.9 running in
that machine the setup works, with 1.99.10 it is stops. 1.99.10 changed several
things related to acks and such, it would appear one of these breaks IP
tunnels. As this is 100% reproducable and I can tcpdump any part of
the chain, I would like advice on finding out why it broke.
