Ethernet I/F does not detect the cable disconnection

I am using P1020 and SDK 1.9. It seams that the Ethernet driver doesn't detect the cable disconnection. First I start the board with the Ethernet cable not connected. once the board is up and running I connect the Ethernet cable. The Ethernet driver is able to detect the connection and the Ethernet connection works as expected (speed, auto negotiation...). If I disconnect the Ethernet cable the Ethernet driver doesn't detect that the cable is disconnect. This worked well with SDK1.5. I had this problem as soon as I migrate to SDK 1.9.

Is there any known bug with the Ethernet driver with SDK 1.9?

Is there any work around?
