I don't supposed you could forward the output of a iptables -L from the
Fedora machine, and the offending traceroutes from their respective
machines?  Also, just for grins and giggles, the output of the route
command from all the machines would be handy if the traceroutes aren't
getting too far.  A great many guesses come to mind as to why traces
would end as you describe, and with the requested info, some of those
could be ruled out.

Also, I don't gleem from your note where the traceroute machines are
relative to the Fedora machine.  Same segment? Same lan, different
segment?  Elsewhere?
