Yes that's a fair summary. It is in a document called "Functional 
Errata" so there is some feeling here that we (allied telesis) should 
follow up things in these kinds of documents.

Agreed. We've certainly not noticed a change in behaviour on our boards. 
I've requested more information from Marvell through their support 
channels. I'll share what I can if/when they come back with something 
useful.
