I've had nightmarish problems over the years with bad ports on 
switches.  I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out why I was 
having so much trouble with my PDP-11 running RSTS/E and DECnet/E, 
and it turned out to be the one switch.  Another time I was getting 
crazy slow speeds between a 2Ghz P4 running XP and a dual 2Ghz Mac.
