G'day all,

I am having a problem with XEN 3.0.4. Occasionally, when I have to reboot a VM with multiple NICs, the network devices appear to swap - i.e., eth0 now appears to be going through xenbr1 and eth1 now appears to be going through xenbr0 whereas earlier eth0 and xenbr0 were aligned and so were eth1 and xenbr1. I have temporarily fixed it by swapping the ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1 files and restarting the network on the VMs however I would like to fix it properly. Any ideas on how I might go about doing this?

Note: Looking at the logs the correct MAC addresses (for the VM) are being assigned to the interfaces on the correct bridges. The results however indicate that something else happened.
