Not sure what gave me the idea to use the same MAC on the TAP and inside the UML.
Since the earlier versions of bridge didn't complain about it, perhaps I figured I
should fight it :)  Anyways, using a different MAC for the TAP and the UML seems
to have solved all of the issues.

Thanks for the help!
