Bug#2083: machine hangs when ftping large file

>The network card is an Intel Etherexpress 16.

This is the problem right here.

The Intel driver, when confronted with a large file being transferred
over a local subnet on a fast (P5) system, will spool a zillion
messages to your syslog (as the errors mount) and then fall over.

I have verified this with both Slackware and Debian.

Solution: Get a new Ethernet card, or a slower machine.  Something
like the BOCA BocaLan PCI with the AMD Lance is nice.
