We managed to find a reproducer - my current guess is that it might have
something to do with intel NIC drivers or some changes in ifupdown2 (or
udev, or in their interaction ;) - Sadly if tcpdump fixes the issues, it
makes debugging quite hard :)

In any case - as can also be seen in the 2 reports you sent:
with vlan-aware bridges the promisc flag of the ethernet interface (the
bridge-port) is set to 0, when vlan-aware is not present it is set to 1.
This explains the symptoms you're seeing, and why running tcpdump fixes it

FWIW: I think simply starting a guest would have fixed the issue as well
(when a second bridge_port gets added the kernel sets the promisc flag on
the port correctly)

As Wolfgang wrote - we'll look into it and will hopefully come up with a
sensible solution.

Thanks for the beta-test and the report!
