2.0.34p15 is looking good. We have one of the infamous vortex 3c59x
hasslesome cards too.

Transmitted ~10million packets with no transmit timeouts (yet). I won't
proclaim success yet, but will note that my _receive_ errors which used to
total in the thousands, appear to have ceased as well even though I
suppose there were non-fatal.

Note that the claim "no known bugs" in 2.0.34p15 is a little bold; I still
see the occasional stuck socket in CLOSE state on a small percentage of
connections upon which SYN cookies were sent. I can still provide an
"exploit" program that reproduces this easily. I posted it recently.
