 I just saw this message for the first time on one of my machines (G4/450)
as well. I've been getting a lot of 'eth0: transmit timed out, resetting'
which would freeze the network in kernel 2.2.17 (I'm now running 2.2.18,
which seems to survive it). My machine is taking on about 120,000 http
requests per hour though and there doesn't seem to be any effect on the
performance. Is this something I should worry about?

 Any info would be much appreciated.
