I have a vr0 with the mtu 1500 and so far (four days only) I've had
no problems.  But I'm not (yet) running pf, and unlike your case, my
mini-ITX box is sitting behind a firewall instead of acting as one.


Searching leads me to believe that this sort of packet is probably
generated by some broken switch/router somewhere on the ISPs network
(maybe a client). However it is worrying that its quite simple to
shutdown a FreeBSD machines network access.
