Some older equipment will unequally prefer certain links over others,
depending on the number of members in the LAG. I.e. a 2-member LAG might
load balance equally under ideal conditions, but a 3-member LAG might
naturally load balance 2:2:1.
Even newer gear does that. TurboIron 24X for example.
I believe this has been fixed on s/w version 4.2.00 on the turboiron, and that it can now support arbitrary numbers of
lag members. Haven't tested it though...
