No. That is desktop  with D-Link DGE-528T 1Gb and nVidia onboard ethernet.
Sorry, I can't send to you rc.conf now. I'll try to do that tomorrow.

Hmm.. Interesting bug. Thanks.

Thank you. I hope I'll have more time for testing in real hardware.

Also I found interesting thing in BETA (may be also in RC). I found 
nvidia-settings in installed packages but it has'nt icon in K menu. Could 
you add that icon when user choose nvidia binary driver? That will be 
usefull for some people. Thanks.
