MTU breakage in f20

It looks like something broke recently that severely limits the MTU in
Fedora 20 when running under NM.  Are other people seeing this too?
Here I'm pinging my upstream lan-to-wan gateway.  A 1200 byte ping fails
while a 500 byte one succeeds.  I see the same thing when pinging
between two identical, fully up-to-date f20 systems.

   wolfgang at arbol ~]$ ping -s 1200 gw
   PING ( 1200(1228) bytes of data.
