Network problem - Gradually getting slower after time - Resolved.

The problem is now resolved after a patch from Ian Caddy.
An internal rx buffer pointer set was not handled properly for the
optimized target.
Adding a volatile directive to these variables seems to be the solution.
For the moment i can't see through the "compiler logic" and the guess is
that this is a compiler optimization bug.
The driver we are using (based on Ians work a few years back) has been
maintained independently by us.
I will do a manual diff to the updated driver just received from Ian and
update him on any feature that we might have added or any problem found.
