check your kernel parameter xfrm4_gc_thresh with:

     cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/xfrm4_gc_thresh

if you see 1024 or even 2048 as the result, it's way to low.  bump it
up with:

     echo 262144 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/xfrm4_gc_thresh

and check your ping/traceroute again.  if you succseed, make your
setting permanet and add

     net.ipv4.xfrm4_gc_thresh = 262144

to /etc/sysctl.conf.
