Should be fixed in current release.  You mean "e1000" not "i1000".

> You mean "e1000" not "i1000".
Yes, indeed.  I have no idea why "e" changed itself to "i". :-) Sorry.

Thanks.  I will recheck when I will have again an access that that
hardware combination but I have a feeling,  based on use of more up-to-date
drivers, that you are correct.
