On the quad G5 which has tg3, I get "Flow control is on for TX and on
for RX". Let me double check if I'm on the same switch...

Heh ! It's not :-)

If I switch the cables, then pause is enabled on the sungem box and
disabled (both Tx and Rx) on tg3, so at least the behaviour is
consistent and follow the switches. Let me check the switch models...

The one with only asym. support is a big Cisco Catalyst 3350 (well.. big
but not that many ports :-)

The one with "classic" pause support is a tiny Netgear GS116

It's possible that the cisco is just misconfigured though, I'll have to
ask Keith when he's around tomorrow to take a peek at the mgmnt
interface.

On it's way.
