	could you try running tcpdump on gif interface as well as ethernet?
	watch both inbound and outbound interface.  what kind of traffic
	do you see and what kind of traffic you don't see?
	# tcpdump -n -i gif0	(packet with inner header)
	# tcpdump -n -i tlp0	(packet with innter + outer header)
	the point is to know which layer is losing (or corrupting) packets.

	watch netstat -sn.  which number increases while you run ospfd?
	taking diff between netstat -sn output always help.
