Bandwith REALLY low. Just trying to browse files on a samba. I´d have to
look for packet sizes. Tried with 1492 byte pings, and no loss at all. I
gess some other "heavy traffic" protocols (like smb) would also fail.

I´m gessing it could be something related to iptables. I happens both
with ip_queue and nfnetlink_queue (cheeting here: also tried a custom
version using some snort_inline patches, but this is not the problem as
it also hapens with mainline snort)
