Yep, I got them. Funny, if you open them in konqueror, it tries to 
display the octets in the packets, resulting in a half-backed webpage 
:). Bloody konqueror is too smart!

Definitely, with the kernel versions you're using :).

Have you considered iproute2 nat? We could get a similar functionality 
to LVS using stuff like:

ip route add nat via
ip rule add nat via

I'll look into this later today,
