Comment 3 Richard Allen 2013-07-24 00:36:29 UTC
Strange.   My machine has been connected to the same switchport for fedoras 17, 18 and 19.  On a hunch I muved it to another port and the problem seems to have resolved itself :)

The timing of this switchport malfunction (with the release of f19) is remarkable.
