For anyone else with this problem, I fixed it by changing the "TunnelMTU" setting on the client. In my case I had to set it to 1250. 1270 was too large, and that was as fine a resolution as I was willing to go to considering that you have to reboot after each change.

The Microsoft knowledge base article at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826159 describes how to change this. A caution -- various articles on the internet describe how to use the ping command to determine what the correct MTU setting is. Doing this gave me an optimum MTU setting of 1300, but that was too large for the TunnelMTU.
