Hmm... But the packets are getting dropped by the underlying ethernet
interface, and I don't particularly want to change its MTU to 1508
since I also run my LAN off that NIC.

My problem is that both ends are advertising and accepting a 1492
byte MRU, but the remote end is actually using 1500 byte MTU. Very
