I have the newest sky2 driver (with the newest fix in version 1.5)

I ssh in via IPv6 and start vim in the shell to edit a file the sky2
network adapter stops to work. This is reproducable. A friend of mine
thought that maybe the IPv6 code doesn't request the right checksum. But
I have no clue if it is related to this. I can give access to the
machine via ssh (including root) if someone is willing to track this
down. I have a userland programming running which reboots the machine if
the network connectivity is lost. At least this one is reliable. If
noone wants a shell account maybe someone can guide me through
debugging and tracking this down.

(mini) [/var/log] grep sky2 kern.log

I am experiencing other sky2 issues which I can workaround by:

# ethtool -K eth0 rx off

It would be interesting if you can see if this, or other features being
disabled works around your issue, eg:

# ethtool -K eth0 tx off
# ethtool -K eth0 txo off
