I have similar problems on a 164UX2 with 21143 onboard. 

Donald Becker: could you PLEASE give a statement to this problem. As far
as I know until now it is hardware related. Is there a way to overcome
this by software (speak: tulip.c)??

I am VERY interested in solving this for our machine shall be a network
server--and there must be hundreds of UX owners with similar problems!

Thanks for all related suggestions!
