Hi people

At the end i have found the culprit
if i remove from my iptables config the following lines
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p igmp -d -j ACCEPT
I don't have anymore the loss of packets

But i really don't know why the system is dropping packet when i accept 
igmp packets

Nevertheless thanks to all people that have answered to my emails
