There are no checksum errors when the pings are working.  

One thing I noticed, when the ping originates from domU, the arp makes it to 
the destination, the destination responds, dom0 can see the arp, but it never 
makes it back to domU.  However, if the external box starts the ping, the arp 
gets to dom0, gets bridged to domU, domU replies to the arp, the external box 
receives the arp response, and successful pings continue.  But as soon as the 
arp entry in domU gets removed/times out, new pings from domU fail again.
