Maybe you "found" the same problem Helmut and me had a couple of
months ago - try to "name" your net devices in a unique manner (if you
didn't yet), this might solve your problem:

example to create this in a unique way for each existing device:
< code snippet - execute on root shell unchanged >
for vsn in /etc/vservers/*/; do
  for ifa in ${vsn}interfaces/*/; do
    echo `basename ${vsn}``basename ${ifa}` > ${ifa}name
< end code snipped >

regards 'n greez,
