I've been creating/destroying a lot of LXC containers, so its possible the veth's created for them are causing some issues. I also have a ton of network-interface-security jobs running suggesting that they're being added but not removed:

network-interface-security (network-interface/vethx3SWbR) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/vethWUOSpt) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/veth90RDZM) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/vethCdnGSx) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/vetha8REFc) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/veth8yrXSC) start/running
network-interface-security (network-interface/vethvtEy9P) start/running

These issues are blocking some LXC work I'm doing, so I'm going to try upgrading which may take me out of the 'affected' category, so I've apt-cloned so we can get back to this state if need be:
