eth0: Bogus packet size

Can anyone tell me why I get the message:

eth0: bogus packet size: 4160, status = 0x21, nxpg=0x30

on my console?  Does this indicate a "packet corruption"
of some sort?

I have a WD80x3-based LAN adapter in my Debian
machine, which is running back-to-back (via a crossover
cable) to a Win95 machine with a 3Com 3C503 adapter.
Although this should be a straightforward configuration, I
haven't been able to make it work.

If I ping my Debian box from Win95, I see the RX light on the
WD card blink each time a packet is sent, and I (usually) get
one of the above complaints.

If I ping my Win95 machine from the Debian machine, I don't
see the TX light flashing as much as I would expect (i.e. it
doesn't blink once per second).  This leads me to believe that
there is a problem with my Debian setup.  ifconfig reports
nothing out of the ordinary, except that it shows the adapter's
I/O address as 0x290 rather than 0x280 as it is jumpered.  (I
see the same thing on another Debian machine, which works fine)

Any hints would be welcome!
