Er I'd say that bug #154303 , bug #154304 , bug #154305 were all duplicates of
this bug but this bug appears to be empty too...

Comment 1 Frank Büttner 2005-04-09 20:54:55 UTC
sorry for that. But when i send the bug report i have get 3 times an error about
an internal server error at the Bugzilla system:(

Comment 2 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-04-10 10:04:51 UTC
Hmm I think you've managed to find another bug actually - *I'm* the one who
posted that first comment but due to the way Bugzilla arranges its information
it makes it look like Frank wrote it!

I think someone assumed that the first comment would always be made by the
reporter which wasn't true in this case.

We have the same on RH Enterprise 3.
We check the same on Knoppix dist.

Is this a linux feature ?
This doesn't happens on the same hardware with SCO, Windows, etc.

Comment 12 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 22:55:35 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 13 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-15 15:28:02 UTC
Is this still an issue?

It would help if I could see tcpdump output when the flip flop occurs.

Comment 14 Frank Büttner 2007-01-15 16:03:28 UTC
At now on FC5 it not happens again.

Comment 15 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-15 17:11:23 UTC
Ok, closing as NOTABUG for now. It was more likely a problem that the other host
responded incorrectly to ARP requests. Reopen if the problem appears again.
