Ok, I enabled portfast on this port. What's connected? One of the
touchscreens?

There's an old Toshiba MAC on the port.

Fair enough. Next time I'm in, I'll set that dumb switch back up and
uplink it to switch3.noise and enable port security on the port to
prevent loops (it's a configurable limit on the number of MACs it'll
learn out the port).
