Matthew pointed out that his machine has a
net.ipv4.netfilter.ip_conntrack_udp_timeout setting that should be usable
for this purpose. This feature seems to have been added to stock kernels in
2.4.23, and may exist in earlier versions of vendor enhanced kernels. I
would guess that most, if not all, 2.6 kernels have the feature, but I
don't have enough source trees lying around to conveniently verify that.
