The desktop is my primary system, so I do tend to keep its config
files fully in order.

The laptop is something of a test bench system, so it's got a number
of *.pacnew files, but I'm convinced they're all unrelated to
networking. Most of them are actually user/group related and are there
just because they're necessarily modified after initial install -
/etc/{group,passwd,shadow,sudoers} and such.

It really seems like an extreme long-shot, that the laptop would be
able to consistently cause strange low-level networking issues in the
desktop, but I'm grasping at straws here.
