I've seen Micom/Interlan Ethernet controllers drop bytes. I've seen
them loose a bit, left shifting subsequent data by a bit. Somehow, these
errors were not caught by any of their protocol error checking.

Micom/Interlan claims that fixes are/were in the works. BTW, this was
observed on a Multibus I board.
