I think a lot of the flakiness on the original boards was hardware
related - you effectively had a 5V supply running through two
polyfuses to the USB devices and as a result the VBUS on the ports
could be rather low.  I replaced the fuses on my board with wire links
and it improved the behavior a lot.  Apparently the newer boards are
shipped with the USB polyfuses replaced by 0 ohm links.

The network glitches I was having didn't seem to be related to this, though.
