Path MTU issues with Juniper SRX?

I've been using the TunnelBroker service for several years. It's migrated with me between homes and ISPs, which has been great. I am (and have been for some time) terminating the tunnel on a Juniper SRX210 running JunOS 12.1X46. About once a week, I stop being able to pass frames outbound from any of my internal LANs (3 of them). I get what looks like an MTU problem ("Packet too big" in pings, etc). Oddly, inbound-initiated traffic seems to be fine, so the behavior is somewhat asymmetric. If I deactivate the config stanza for tunnel interface in the firewall, leave it that way for about 5 minutes, then re-enable it, everything comes back. I'll attach the relevant config snippets below, but any hints on figuring out what's going on would be helpful.
