We have encountered similar problems with a motherboard with a built in
rtl8139 chip. The system hangs after an unpredicatble amount of time, only
when the network is plugged in. 
We are using v1.04 of the driver compiled as a module. We have attempted
to debug the problem without success, however we have been meaning to send
an email to Donald detailing the circumstances under which the system
hangs. Hopefully we will be able to send this soon.
