A quick note on the bridge.

I will run some tests with and without ltspbr0 present once I can
troubleshoot my current issue but I did not do so this time as I have
to 'just try it' or else I'll end up without LTSP at all the way
things are going at present.  Of course, the way I removed the bridge
means putting it back with brctrl addbr ltspbr0 (I think) and then
configuring eth1 to be the slave again. And now that I have
iftop/ntop, I'll hopefully get real numbers to look at.
