No, that's not the problem.
First, the machine with the new kernel sees the ARP packets from the other
systems. Second, even ISDN connections don't work - they establish the ISDN
connection, but can't get packets through. And I can assure you the kernel
needs to see several interrupts from the ISDN card before it will have an
ISDN layer 3 connection established.
It's a generic inet bug. Does it not manifest on other machines? Then I'll
have to dig into it, but I couldn't afford this machine to be down for
The interfaces here are:

The multiple 184.108.40.206 interface have triggered a generic IP routing bug
before (the last-minute-fix which caused one of the first patches against
1.4 back then), somebody changed something in that area lately?
