Mmmm, as of 6.2, yes, SGI systems do have MTU discovery. And yes, I'm
fairly certain that is running 6.2.

Let's take this offline (I can help with debugging this as I know who
to contact internally). Can the affected parties email me directly?

Also, try the same experiment but use; that box is
still running 5.3 so doesn't have MTU discovery. It's also in europe
(well, <duh>) with a completely different 'net connection, which may
be part of the problem. <shrug>
