Hallo Peter,

The problem is also there in 2.4.9-xx. So it does not matter at this time.
Sure we will update to latest kernel before going in Produktion ;)

That is what we are going for if there is no solution for the e100

That's it. We then get to know if the Networkcard is down or has trouble. 
In an cluster we would not so fast notice if one Server is "missing" :)
It works because we are using ans Comapq Insight card (a seperate Computer
on an PCI card) which have their own Network connection and the error message
comes from that Card.
We use this with all our Servers no matter if NT4, W2K or Linux.
