  How reproducible:

Fault occurred after booting yesterday, then some time later after
manually stop/starting acpid/cpuspeed I could not reproduce it
anymore; not even after another reboot.
Comment 2 Stefan Behrens 2006-04-10 03:54:11 EDT
Got tricked by another bug %-)
At each reboot, my wireless interface is randomly assigned
one of the two interface names eth0, eth1.

This is although I have the following in my modprobe.conf (default):
 alias eth0 via-rhine
 alias eth1 ipw2100

I wrote a separate bug report for it (Bug 188454).
