Some more findings:

- Problem can be seen with Linux 3.7 in the AP (VM), too.
- *Problem disappears* if the bridge device br0 on the host is set to
  promiscuous mode.
- Sometimes, there can be seen the warning 
  "notebook dhcpcd[2784]: eth0: bad UDP checksum, ignoring" 
  when starting dhcpcd on the notebook with br0 / host set to promiscuous
  mode (nevertheless dhcpcd worked fine). I never saw this warning

Any idea how to fix the problem w/o running the bridge br0 on the host
in promiscuous mode?
