[Bridge] F13 bridge issues

As you suspected, I believe the igb driver is at fault - I configured a bridge on the same machine using onboard tg3 cards.
The bridge worked fine and the fault did not occur until I SCP'd a file to the server on the igb card. After which the bridge continued to work fine.
Thanks for your help.

Everything works as expected for a short time before the 2 Ethernet cards used in the bridge start reporting millions of errors. I confirmed this is the case on 2 separate systems (although both systems use Intel NICs). To try to resolve this I've:

You might also be creating a packet loop?
Turn on spanning tree and find out.
