I'll push this shortly. For the record, here two scripts, that each execute fine but once run concurrently cause a race.

script 1:

#!/bin/bash
dev=xyzdev
while test 1; do
   ebtables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i ${dev} -j ACCEPT
   if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
       echo "odd!"
   fi
   ebtables -t nat -D PREROUTING -i ${dev} -j ACCEPT
   if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
       echo "odd!"
   fi

script 2:

#!/bin/bash
dev=xyzdev2
while test 1; do
   ebtables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i ${dev} -j ACCEPT
   if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
       echo "odd!"
   fi
   ebtables -t nat -D PREROUTING -i ${dev} -j ACCEPT
   if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
       echo "odd!"
   fi


Output when run concurrently:

The kernel doesn't support a certain ebtables extension, consider recompiling your kernel or insmod the extension.
odd!

odd!
