The bug report that I got was, the machine would lock up sometimes during
bootup not always though. I was abble to reproduce the problem pretty
contigously by using a simple script as:

while true ;
echo Starting Network;
/network start;
echo Network Running;
sleep 5;
echo Stopping Network;
/network stop;
echo Network Stopped;
sleep 5

This would lockup the machine anywhere from 1 min to 1/2 an hour.
The machine was linked to a HP switch with FC capability, and the
IP assignment was done using DHCP, card used 559ER....

With the patch that I sentin, the system has been running for about 4
days now....
