This is with code 07.2.00aT7f3. Had two units stacked together,
rebooted/power cycled at least once and it worked. Next time we
had to power cycle due to a bad config apply, second unit came
back and as soon it would join the stack, it crashed.

Brocade wanted us to remove it from the stack (remotely) and/or
disabled jumbo frames.
