Looks like a netcat bug, if it doesn't tune buffers to the interface MTU.

I'm not sure if nc has a 'de facto' maintainer however I believe it is 
something which was recently imported into the freebsd base system.

Still, it is better to try to field patches with the upstream maintainer 
before filing a FreeBSD PR with your patches.
