We encountered a similar issue as part of bug ID CSCut40421 specific
to 10G links.  There was a somewhat complex workaround, but we
upgraded to resolve it.  I think the bug was a regression in
15.1(2)SY5 from a prior fix to resolve the same issue with 1G links.
We went to 15.2(1)SY1a, which fixed it for us.
