Please re-test with the latest CVS snapshot. Those extra eight octets
should not be in the frame and this was fixed by the defragmentation
related fix I mentioned yesterday. TCP/IP stack did not care about the
extra octets, but bridging code could not send such frames when the
total length was larger than MTU.
