As a general note, the IOSource code is still rather new and may not
yet perform optimal in all cases. The major problem is that the
precise semantics of the libpcap interface varies depending on OS
version and libpcap version (and patches to either of them). I would
not be suprised if the problem w/ two Linux interfaces is related to

I'd be happy to help sorting this out. However, I don't have a Linux
machine at hand which has two interfaces seeing a high-volume stream
(and I am a bit tight on time right now...).
