hm - tricky, i think. because no kernel oopses, nothing to look at in the
syslog (yes?),

Nothing anywhere, even tcpdump just seams to get cut off - I have not
been debugging ethernet drivers for years, getting a little rusty at
that, so nothing there yet.

various nic drivers affected, others cases like
these only Documentation/BUG-HUNTING comes to my mind: if works,
and 2.6.12-rc6 does not, we'll need to find out the kernelversion which
introduced this behaviour.

That I can give you, kernel works but 2.6.9 does not (at least
not with tg3 and tulip cards).

one question,

Can I know what is the problem? I have 2 tg3 adapters, lots of e100's and some Cisco PIX and devices.

I can try to reproduce it and see if anyone has something to say about it.

Let me know,
