Hmmm, I notice the box sometimes hangs up with <16GB RAM under
moderate network load just after "hme0: invalid packet size
xxxx; dropping" is displayed. I tried 16, 12, 8, and 4GB.
Another E4500 with 5GB RAM seems OK, though.
Is there anyone interested in investigating? I can provide remote
access (serial console available) to this box.
