I haven't honestly had the time to look and see if it is exhibiting the same
behavior.  I've been terribly sick and now very busy.

Needless to say I've had no end of problems with Broadcom hardware on many
different platforms right down to the Xserves on G5 systems [seen em just
hang dead because of some incorrect specification givent to driver writers
at a particularly large deployment of these servers]

I'm seeing crashes after just a little bit of traffic is received on

Interesting... I don't crash, I just can't receive any traffic.  As soon as
I destroy the bridge interface things start working again.

I've tried both bge0 and bge1.

I'll try to collect some data of my own today on the matter.
