I finally rebooted a new kernel this morning. It still does that:
64 bytes from 10.1.0.2: icmp_seq=39679 ttl=255 time=0.234 ms
64 bytes from 10.1.0.2: icmp_seq=39680 ttl=255 time=0.142 ms
64 bytes from 10.1.0.2: icmp_seq=39711 ttl=255 time=0.120 ms
64 bytes from 10.1.0.2: icmp_seq=39712 ttl=255 time=0.150 ms
I'll keep using it for a while, but if it gets too bad, I'll go back
to (gasp) rtk..
