Hi Alex and Laine:

What I notice is, that with Laine's patch, for virtualport of type openvswitch, if I do NOT define
a VLAN, it crashes. If I do, then I can start my virtual machines. Without Laine's patch, it's the
same, which leads me to believe Laine's patch only fixes a symptom of this issue.

I'm looking into this now, will see how far I get with it today. But it appears to me to be a bug
in the logic which is handling VLANs at a higher layer.

Thanks,
Kyle
