Same here.  The 1950-III that I have has bce cards (2) on the motherboard.
When the kernel probes them, the IPMI interface dissapears for a second or
so. The IPMI documentation seems to imply that either port will talk IPMI
--- but I havn't tested this.

I havn't noticed any problems with the port otherwise.  I'm even bridging
the two motherboard ports right now.
