Just for the sake of random randomness, I've noticed that my 16th January 
vintage kernel seems to have lost its 1 Gbit capability on the em0 
connection and also seems to have intermittent interrupt storms.  Of 
course I should really update to a more current version, and it may be 
more of a hardware issue anyway (especially as it may have followed a 
bunch of power cuts in short succession).  But I thought it might be worth 
a mention in case it's something prior to the 16th Jan build that did it. 
Or not, as the case may be. :)
