Was this bug in the networking code due to netdde?

This was posted in the bug-hurd mailing list a few days ago.  Maybe
that'll fix your issue:

    One way to avoid the bug is to use the e1000 hardware network type. I
    guess the rtl8139 driver that we ship in netdde has a bug in its irq
    handling (we had already seen that kind of bug a long time ago in the
    IDE driver). Moving to rump-based network drivers will probably help
    fixing this kind of issue long-term :)
