Well, it is not. I don't know what I was thinking/doing when I "checked"
that the problem was asymmetric. Here is the countdown of the facts:

	- without IPSEC I can transfer bytes in both directions normally
	- with IPSEC enabled transfers to either direction fail for
	  bigger packets (one end has ep0, the other has ex0); ie. packets
	  that grow over MTU size due to IPSEC overhead
	- with IPSEC policies, but Path MTU Discovery disabled
	  (sysctl -w net.inet.ip.mtudisc=0) problems disappear

So, my problem is solved. In case others have similar problems:

	- is the above expected behavior?
	- how should I have learned about it in advance?
	- should it be documented better?
