#394047 seems to include a report of the same problem I'm having. My
suspicion is that udev is getting confused by the two lance interfaces
using the same MAC address.
If I remove z25_persistent-net.rules and z45_persistent-net-generator.rules
from /etc/udev/rules.d, the problem goes away.

Okay -- I did that, and it's fine now. Thanks.
