gem0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu  
         ether 00:0a:95:75:6e:d0
         inet netmask 0xffffffc0 broadcast
         media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
         status: active

I can SSH to the system and do some light work, but attempting to  
download any large-ish file results in the interface hanging.  Even  
applying the patch doesn't seem to fix it. I did just discover that  
unplugging/replugging the ethernet cable brings it back to life though.

If you'd like remote access to this system let me know and I could  
arrange something.
