I'm seeing a weird problem with later 2.5.64-mm,
probably related - when the problem hits, I have
to "make things work" quickly, so there is not a
lot of time to analyze (booting back into the
latest -ac kernel makes everyone happy)

The box in question, running RH 8.0, is set up
as a dhcp server, iptables firewall, and squid
proxy for a small network of 6 systems (3 linux,
3 ms windows)

After booting up, it all works initially, but after
some time, the windows/dhcp users complain
that they can't get out to the internet anymore.

Very odd, since my internet access via a linux
workstation seems fine - I could just say "wow,
it sure sucks to be a win doze user" and move
on, but I can't quite get away with that...

So the problem is rather interesting, and multi-
faceted - I'm not sure at this point whether the
problems follow the ms windows users, or the
dhcp users, or those not plugged into the same
switch that's in my office... but I'm willing to
try possible fixes through a brute force trial
and error approach.
