bridge-utils , hanging SLES10

Hi I am having a problem with SLES10 sp2 and bridge-utils

I have installed bridge-utils on a SLES 10 SP2 VM with two NIC's I want to create a bridge between them, eth1 is and eth2 is both are assigned as static IP's with eth1 connected to the "real network"

I set both NIC's to have no IP address as outlined in the guide.

I tryed to set up a simple bridge as follows

brctl addbr b1
brctl addif b1 eth1
brctl addif b1 eth2
ifconfig b1 up

I then bring up the bridge b1, Within 1 min of bring the bridge up my SLES VM hangs, so I added more memory as I read bridges can consume a extra CPU its now at 4 GB and still hangs.

I have also set the static IP address on the NIC's before I bring up the bridge but it still hangs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
