Bug#111158: Kernel 2.4.5+ network timeouts

Package: kernel-image-2.4
Version: N/A
Severity: important

This is an issue for the kernel folk. Just verify 

telnet www.compaq.com 80

It will not respond with all kernel 2.4.5+ (timeout)
I used my workstation at work with 2.4.8,9 and several machines of 
the Project. It seems ok with 2.4.2 or 2.4.4 (eg auric et al.)
This seems a problem with routing filtering policies (icmp filtering
I think) used by some sites. 
Use debussy.debian.org to see the problem.
Compaq is only one of sites with the same problem.
It does not seem a problem due to PMD (path mtu discovery): 

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_no_pmtu_disc

does not solve the problem.
