I thought I said that...

I'm monitoring it with tcpdump. I used ethereal also. 
I'm monitoring now without the X server running to isolate more possible 

I'v seen no problem iin the packets itself. All broadcasts from my machine 
are promptly ansewrered. But my machine seems to do nothing with them for a 
long time.

There is no flooding of broadcasts from my machine. Just one, and an eternal 
delay till whatever Im doing (e.g. "ls") is finally done.

If it helps, I can send a copy of the dumpfile to the list.
