I can confirm this problem - in our case, both ends are RH6.1 with
a 2.2.13 kernel. I'm actually using it via a SOCKS5 firewall with 
the runsocks command - I don't know the spec of the intervening

I also noticed that small files transfer without problem (anything
larger than ~500k breaks).

I rebuilt the supplied SRC rpm locally.
