    Are you considering the size of IP and UDP headers? Those must be
    factored in.

    Packets which exceed the maximum size go to the big bit bucket in
    the sky. RIP. This is a problem for programmes which "know" that
    they can send 65535 byte packets over UDP.

    Programs pushing such large UDP frames over ethernet don't "know" very
    much IMHO....
