Bytes counter of ifconfig in 7.2 resets?

Hi all,
	is it normal for the TX/RX bytes
counters in the output of ifconfig to reset?
I'm running 2.4.9-31 on a brand new system
and noticed that both counters will reset
to zero at some point just above 4077 Mb.
The packet counters don't reset, just the
actual bytes counters.
