Perhaps this is a bug in the Linux bridging code?  Shouldn't "brctl
setportprio" be used to force the MAC of the bridge to be the same MAC
as the physical port - then it wouldn't change....  Didn't work last
time I tried this tho (which I thought was probably a bug), and it's not
particularly well documented, so I may have the wrong end of the stick here.
