Don't be too sure.  The configuration I described also has an Intel 
PRO/1000 MT with driver from Intel (via Microsoft).

Another experiment I didn't mention is I loaded the same software stack 
on to another machine with a single core processor (Shuttle FX41).  It 
also has an Intel PRO/1000 MT.  It showed no problems.

However, I suspect this is just coincidence.  My build is "network 
silent".  The network adapter shouldn't be involved.
