Oh, this way it looks much better, thanks.  Directory listing was fine,
and copying files during 2-3 minutes over NFS worked as well. More
tests will follow tomorrow.

Next step? :-)  Should I put that command somewhere in my init
scripts, or even directly in rc.conf, or wait for a new if_bce0.c
version?  I am available for any other PE1950-related tests if this
may help.
