It ain't nice at all. I've seen the quirky behavior on the only machine I'm familiar
curty@einstein:~$ lspci -v | grep -i ethernet
06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI
Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)
curty@einstein:~$ uname -a
Linux einstein 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Nov 3 03:41:26 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
If I understand Andrei's (?) post correctly, the driver may be fixed in
a more recent kernel (2.6.32-6?).
