99% sure. Past this commit I get corruptions after 5 minutes at most
(that's ADSL with USB Thomson/Alcatel Speedtouch -> PPP over ATM,
with a GRE tunnel over that PPP).
I'm now running 901eaf6c8f997f18ebc8fcbb85411c79161ab3b2 (i.e. the
last commit before the one in question) for 4 hours and nothing like

Not sure about the exact rule, but the most probable candidates are:
-A INPUT -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST,ACK SYN -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset
-A INPUT -p udp -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

Other "REJECT" rules haven't fired yet.

Could be some obscure problem with GRE/Speedtouch/PPP over ATM,
triggered by this patch, though.

Perhaps I can do some experiments - just say a word.
