well... that's not the worst decision. If I add/delete tap-interfaces 
for the qemu-kvm processes, there is a connectivity-timeout on the whole 
machine, which I now refer to an STP-relevant event.
How can I make sure, that interface-up/down does _not_ influence the 
ovs-stp-functionality, if at all possible?

Thnx in at vance,
