Thanks.  I assume current 3.3 release candidates behave the same way.

Based on [2], it looks like v2.6.25-rc9~99^2~24 ([NET]: Add preemption
point in qdisc_run, 2008-03-28) made this easier to trip.

As for the next step: I'd suggest posting a summary of the symptoms,
which kernel versions you have tested, and a link to [1] at, product Drivers, component Network, and
letting us know the bug number so we can track it without forgetting
what has already been learned.

Hope that helps,
