1.99.2 Problem with IP_FORWARDING and http

I decided to see how IP forwarding was working for me with 1.99.2, but
I've run into some problems. My configuration is as follows:

zeego <-------> rabbit <-----> 28.8 modem slip connection <---> dialup line

If I use Netscape 2.01 from zeego and try to read


it typically stops transferring data after 5K bytes. It sometimes
stops after 2 or 3K, but it has never made it past 10K. If I let it
run, I eventually get a Network Error: Connection reset by peer.
Netstat shows a reasonable output when nothing is getting tranferred

tcp 0 0 zeego:1072 herbie.ucs.indiana:www ESTABLISHED

If I instead read the same page from rabbit (with the same version of
Netscape), the entire page is read without problem and without delay.
Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
