Has anyone else noticed 3com Cyclone cards ceasing to work in promiscuous
mode on linux 2.4.2 after a while?

The only solution that I've found is the Microsoft Way (reboot) and
obviously that's suboptimal.

It seems to happen after receiving a fair few packets:

eth0   1500   0 1534454331     91      0   1010        0      0      0 0 BRU

As well as interrupts:

 20: 1763027772 1763102927   IO-APIC-level  eth0 

Thanks for any suggestions.
