8139 failures related to packetsize?

I've many problemems with our embedded pcs that  have the 8139 chip on
it. There are sudden breakdowns sometimes all few hours, sometimes all
few days only. Now i discovered that when i send pings from a NT
Workstation to the linux PCs with 8139 chips, I get failures (about
30% loss) when I ping with packetsizes 32,64,128,256. But when I ping
with 100 bytes for example, there are no failures. Now I will try to
change the Packetsize in my application, so that it's not near 32
bytes for example. I hope that will fix my problems.

If anybody discovered the same, please tell.
