ok...I decided to live on the edge with our 7513 having the SNMP counter 
brokenness and upgraded it to 12.2(14)S.  It's working so far, but I've 
noticed a few strange things.  Here's some diff extracts from rancid.

The physical memory is seen/accounted for differently.

- !Memory: main 262208K/2072K                                                   
+ !Memory: main 262144K/2072K              

Port adaptor naming has changed...not a big deal, just mentioning it.  

- !Slot 0/VIP2 R5K/PA 0: type PA-FE-TX=, 1 ports                                
+ !Slot 0/VIP2 R5K/PA 0: type 100BaseTX-ISL, 1 ports                            

This is a little odd though.

+ no service single-slot-reload-enable                                          
  service timestamps debug datetime                                             
  service timestamps log datetime                                               
  service password-encryption                                                   
- service single-slot-reload-enable                                             
+ no service single-slot-reload-enable                 

Is single-slot-reload not supported now?...and why's it in there twice?  

(config)#service single-slot-reload-enable 
% Ambiguous command:  "service single-slot-reload-enable "

(config)#service single-slot-reload-enable?
single-slot-reload-enable  single-slot-reload-enable  

(config)#service single-slot-reload-enable ?

Whats up with that?

Any idea why upgrading disabled redundancy?

- redundancy                                                                    
-  no keepalive-enable                                                          
-  mode hsa                 

At the moment, ethernet counters are working again, but if the 12.0S bug 
is still present, it'll take a week or two for them to stop updating.
