I've been trying to track down this type of loss for
quite some time..
what i've seen is
Solaris does not have this issue.
the free *nix'es do have this issue and it is worse
with more hosts being monitored.
there is the in_cksum() function in icmp.c. I should check
that to insure it is properly forming the checksum.
