I created exactly the same setup (machine 1 and 3 are UMLs) and could not
reproduce the problem. tcpdump shows that machine 1 sends fragmented ICMP
echo requests and machine 3 sends ICMP echo reply back. On machine 2,
ip_conntrack_max is lowered to 10, still there is no problem after
hundreds of pings.
Do you have any extra patch applied on the top of 2.6.2rc2?
