eth0 is the interface I used for connecting to the lan, I can see packets 
passing, if I do that.
If I do 'tcpdump -i eth1' I can see the PPPoE packets inside domain 1, too.
If I put an IP address on that interface in domain 1 and ping something on that 
subnet, I see exactly the same output on
tcpdump -i eth1    in domain 1
tcpdump -i vif1.1  in domain 0
but not for PPPoE traffic FROM domain 1, the other direction works fine.

No, the ifconfig counters for drops or errors aren't increasing in either
