RE: Problems with AT&T

yeah, those are almost sure to be boxes of the vendor-type that is de-prioritizing icmp control messages to the max. That will be rememdied, but not sure exactly when. It does not affect actual data flow through the network. Just trace ttl-exceeded response (you can't ping those boxes anyway, so it doesn't matter, but they would be dropping those also).
