Actually, Pascal Hambourg found the exact cause.
Returns 1 if TCP calculates the outgoing maximum segment
size based on the MTU of the appropriate interface. Oth-
erwise, it is calculated based on the greater of the MTU
of the interface, and the largest (non-loopback) inter-
face MTU on the system.
And the offending machine had a:
% ifconfig pflog0
pflog0: flags=0 mtu 33136
which explains the problem, which is not 64-bits, nor NetBSD 3. (The
PC which does not show the problem did not have pflog0.)
