Jochen replied off-list and suggested I set the MTU to something like
1400. I tried that, as well as the default of 1500, and neither
seemed to make any difference. In all cases long wikipedia articles
usually either arrive truncated or timeout before completion. Also,
in reply to another question from him, the link had actually been
using an MTU of 552 previously.
Thanks for any suggestions so far, but I still don't have a solution.
