Dear all,

Last night I was building a Sparc 5 while watching TV:

 - ssh into the Sparc from a laptop
 - download kernel source onto laptop
 - scp kernel source back from the laptop via the ssh session

However, every time I do this, the laptop's NIC locks up, usually after
transferring a few Mb or so. I then need ti ifup/ifdown the laptop's NIC.

I ended up FTPing via another box, but am curious as to what is going on.
Presumably layering ssh does curious things.
