Well, no. The report is quite accurate. Maybe it's not as complete
as it could have been, though. :-)

        card: Interlan BD-N11010, rev C, assy rev A, S.N A-103.
        transceiver: Interlan NA1010
        driver: @(#)if_de.c 7.1 (Berkeley) 6/5/86

It does appear that nobody else has seen this, so I'm still a little
puzzled. Someone did mention that Interlan shipped some bad cards
about five years ago which had a similar problem. Our card is
at least that old. Anyway, I've quite worrying about it and just
replaced it with a DEUNA, since we have plenty of those.

Thanks to all who responded.
