Yes, I was seeing the exact same behaviour.  See my message from a few
hours ago "Random network lossage on nfe(4)".

Are you also using nfe?  Or an nforce based mobo?  Even regular PCI
network cards I added to that machine didn't work anymore, but that
was already so with 4.0.  It may have been the case that the mobo was
fried, since I moved the cards to a new machine with another chipset
and it works just perfect.
