Using the files that Christoffer uploaded, I can reproduce this bug
even on stable-0.11.
(i.e. using scp to copy a large file seems to "hang" the network stack
in the guest to the point that even "ping" fails)

The interesting part about this bug is that Christoffer patched the
Linux kernel to allow using an ARMv6 CPU on the versatilepb board.
I've verified that by changing the emulated cpu from arm1136-r2 to
arm926 and building a kernel for the arm926 this bug no longer

I'm not familiar enough with the ARM architecture to explain why the
versatilepb board would have such "reliability problems" with
arm1136-r2 CPU right away.
I was about to try emulating a arm1136-r2 CPU on a realview board.
