It appears that the version of IP-TCP we have loaded here doesn't handle IP
fragmentation. We need a fix for this immediately. We are trying to get NFS to
work, and our central UNIX file server sends a datagram containing all of the
information in /etc/exports (which is considerable) in reponse to the RPC
request mntproc-1-export. The resulting datagram is larger than an ethernet
packet and is hence fragmented, and the Symbolics drops it on the floor. We
don't believe that IP fragmentation is an optional portion of the IP protocol
