Yup -- and that hugeness is much related to the symbols that make gdb 
functional.  If you want to give up on gdb much can be stripped to 
result in a smaller footprint.

So does that mean that the [?tun ==> host ==> forward ==> gateway ==> 
ISP ==> firewall ==> host ==> ?tun] chain is working for you?  Or do you 
ping from the host?

Perhaps the encap feature is not encapping?  Does the jnos "trace" 
command(s) directed to a file shed light on your missing traffic?

There are a few wrinkles that jnos mounted on Linux [or any other host 
OS for that matter] provides.  Anyone who grew up on a DOS platform does 
not experience the "virtual" thing.  Takes a little head scratching...?

Best of luck.
