I'm sorry to say that I did not read this message with the attention it
deserves, but it's been a trying couple of days. So..

Is this a manifestation of the bridge trying to do spanning tree protocol?
Most of the walkthroughs I've read lately about bridged networking include
commands to turn off STP before they start adding ports to the bridge.

If you don't need it, try turning stp off:
brctl stp wan0 off
brctl stp lan0 off

(Is there a way to turn it off via iproute2 instead? I couldn't find it
quickly, if there is a way.)
