I thought windows only asserted DF when you used the '-f' flag, but with
a length of 60 bytes it won't be an MTU issue.

It could be that the interrupts are never getting called... which
version of GPLPV are you running? Could you try the very latest version
- 0.9.12-pre15-dont-use.exe? That one is definitely not suitable for
production use but it does contain a few changes in the network.

Also, if it is an interrupt issue, there should be a total of <256 that
will be sent before the queue fills up and no more can be sent. Can you
send 256 ping packets from Windows to Dom0 and then see if Dom0 receives
more after that?
