Subjectroutes disappear
I've been having an intermittent problem over the last couple of years 
where the addition of a network interface will cause all routes on the box
to vanish.

the systems are a stripped down Debian 3.0 build with a 2.6.7 kernel and
the vast majority of the time they work just fine.

however once in a while I get a config where enabling an interface causes
netstat (and /proc/net/route) to report no routes. The system continues to
function so the routes are still there somehow, but they aren't reported.

the latest box to do this has two interfaces (this one has tg3 interfaces,
but I've also seen this on adaptec starfire, tulip, and 3com nics)
192.168.242.142
192.168.210.219

if I boot the box with the interfaces disabled and do ifup individually it
sometimes works (I haven't nailed down the difference between when it does
and when it doesn't), if I leave them enabled at boot by the time I can
login the routing table shows blank.

I have a few days to fiddle with this system before I need to use it,
where should I look to dig up more info?

syslog shows the following

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
