I've seen similar unreasonable delays. I think that's a bug in some firmware.
My straw man is that something like a DSL link goes down and the router/modem
doesn't flush its queue. A while later, the box at the other end finishes
rebooting, the link comes back up, and the packet gets sent on its way.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
