You're right, this happened accidently, Thank you!

Yes, that was what I tried at first. Unfortunately the out-of-band
management processor on the motherboard is also picky and does
only listen to one of the interfaces, so I had to swap the cables
back :-( .
As far as I can see, there is also no possibilty to modify
interrupt numbers and IO-adresses of the NICs in the BIOS setup.
My primary intention to interchange eth0 and eth1 was the strong
desire not to have different config files for just this single
server. But it seems that I have to live with that.
