Description (partial)

Path MTU calculated at MTU 62.  Certain host applications with DF-Bit were then unable to send traffic over the Tunnel.

To illustrate when broken:

show interface tunne0l:
Path destination MTU 62, expires never when broken

After a shut/no shut of the tunnel interface traffic with DF-Bit set flows once again.

show interface tunne0l:
Path destination MTU 0, expires never

Both local and remote routers were running 12.4(18a)
tunnel path-mtu-discovery set on local peer only.

Local router started PMTUD while the link on the remote peer router was down but before routing converged on the locall router.
