I haven't experienced the same problem, but occasionally, my tg3 boxes
don't acquire their DHCP addresses on boot because the link is
(reportedly) not detected.  At this point, I have to log in via remote
console and manually try to bring up the interface (sometimes it takes
2-3 tries).  Also, sometimes shell sessions pause for 3-5 seconds for no
good reason.

I haven't bothered to trace the problem further, because for me, it's
just a minor annoyance.

Maybe it's related? *shrug*
