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.
