Yes, and in fact, it's a hardware problem, but Solaris already has a
software fix for it. The problem goes only for the internal hme0
interface. If you have a quad fast ethernet (driven by the same driver,
the "Happy Meal" one), you won't have any problem on any of the interfaces
of this card.
Search Google for "U1 hme lockup patch", and apply the one line patch.
