No, the only thing I have ever done with peth0 is look at its setting
with ethtool :-) 

I reviewed everything. my setup is identical except that now both my
SMP Athlon and UP I686 are running changeset : 7380:f9b300fab36e.

The interface in question is using an e1000 module, all default

To be honest I really thought this was normal as I kept saying to myself
how could no one else be having this problem. 

Anyway, If I see this again you can be assured of an extensive detailed
bug report :-)

I really have to say, that the work you guys are doing is making my life
easier and easier every day :-)

Thanks to the "Xen Team" for such a killer contribution.
