One thing to try is to use ethtool to disable all forms of offload in
DomU and Dom0 on the bridge, physical, and virtual interfaces. That
should at least confirm that offload is not the cause.

A simple tcpdump might show you some checksum issues (assuming you use
-s0 to grab the whole frame) but it's often hard to tell as packets can
have no checksum while on the bridge.
