In most scenarios, the dom0 and unprivileged kernels can share
the same modules. Is there a problem with doing that in your

Yep, the bridge problem is still there.

The 'netfix' script now almost does the right thing to recover,
but neglects to do a "brctl addif nbe-br eth0" to actually add
eth0 to the bridge.

Hmm, not sure how that is happening. netfix is supposed to
transfer the IP address from eth0 to the bridge device (nbe-br)
to work around what is arguably a bug in the linux bridge code.

I reckon by the end of the week the unstable tree should have
settled down to working reliably again...
