Hmm! Changing ifconfig.vr0 to include "media auto" doesn't do anything,
but issuing a manual "ifconfig vr0 media auto" fixes the crappy performance.
I can see the switch lights go out for a second or so -- it's clear that some
renegotiation is occurring.
Very interesting that the intial ifconfig is unable to get it right,
but the subsequent ones are fine.
