Comment 2 Andy Gospodarek 2007-04-05 14:02:23 UTC
Can you tell me a little more about your network setup (both host running
bonding and host you are pinging)?  

Comment 3 Andy Gospodarek 2007-04-05 14:02:52 UTC
Oh yeah, and if you can send me a sysreport of your system that would be nice
too.  Thanks.
