This happened after I pulled the ethernet link (and re-inserted).  The
other end of the cable went into a no-name 10/100 Etherswitch.

The card is a LinkSys (part# LNE100Tx), here's part of the kernel boot.

This seems to have 'fixed' it:
ip link set eth1 down
ip link set eth1 up


This is not reproducible, at least not easily (I just tried pulling the link 
several
times, and it's working fine...)

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,
Ben
