 nice +19 *shouldn't* cause this problem to happen... and the ethernet card
 changes shouldn't cause it to happen either.  The motherboard swap may be
 the blame though.  Have you stressed the new motherboard with, say, a full
 kernel compile but with lots of processes?  Like: 
     make -j7 MAKE='make -j7'
 I find this will show motherboard and memory problems pretty quickly. 
 But in this case I'm thinking the nice +19 may be more likely the blame. 
 But I can't imagine how it'd be the cause... lemme see if I can reproduce
