Those should not have the reset problem, but they have autonegotiation
problems with *some* switches.

You could try something like

 ifconfig vr0 media 100baseTX
 (wait a few seconds, to give nway handshake a chance to finish)
 ifconfig vr0 media autoselect

before stressing the connection to verify this is the problem.

It is supposed to be solved in current.
