I am starting to agree -- we are either seeing an issue with timing
_or_ a configuration issue. Perhaps our config for eth1 is broken.
It'd be strange since I tested it quite a bit in the run up to the
release, but it's also true that I was making subtle changes to the
very same configs.

Good news is: I can repro the problem on a machine I have here.

I spotted exactly the same difference and tested it -- does not seem
to work. Hope to get to the bottom of it.

(Apologies for the delay in getting into reproduce-and-debug -- I've
had a hell of a time getting hardware I could play with for this, as
I'm not @ my usual office, city or continent ;-) )
