After 6 iterations everything looked good so I started to do other 
things while the netcat was running (build ports). Shortly after 
(seconds), the problems appear again. Now, I'm not sure how reliable the 
testing procedure is and there are other issues with the chipset (AMD 
690G), usb support problems, the sata subsystem is not well recognized 
... I've seen also problems on this box while using em0 so too complex 
environment to isolate the possible re0 problem. While I'll be glad to 
test whatever you ask me for, too loose ends on this box nowadays.
