Is that ping anomaly happening when it is "Locked Up" or appearing to
not forward traffic?

Well, very strange.  Playing with ping reveals that "ping -s 563" works
and "ping -s 564" doesn't (standard 1500 MTU).  I set the MTU on both
sides to the trusty 576 value and that works fine.  No idea why the link
should have such a low limit.
