Since this seems to be a rare problem, I'm not sure I'd say that it is
more sensitive in general.  It does use a different kernel and
initializes the hardware differently (and possibly in a different order)
there are certainly differences and in this particular case FC3 seems
to have a problem.  Have you tried either a different NIC or moving
the one you have to a different pci slot?  I'd guess that for some
reason you are missing the interrupt when a packet is received.
