I have wrote down the official procedure for disabling ltspbr0 here.  Be 
warned that deleting ifcfg-ltspbr0 alone will cause you problems, 
because it will come back the next time you upgrade the ltsp-server package.

At the moment I have not witnessed or seen hard numbers supporting the 
claim that getting rid of the bridge actually helps throughput.  Could 
somebody please support this with real numbers?
