2950T:Copper Gig, Crossover GigabitEthernet0/2 is up, line protocol is down

For years I have connected two Catalysts via a cross-over cable. Today I have a new 2950T (copper gigabit ports) that don't get link with a cross-over cable. If I move the crossover between two fastethernets I get link.

What am I missing? I tried a no-shut, I tried hardcoding speed 1000, I upgraded to latest IOS, I called TAC, etc...

Both sides show the same/below;

GigabitEthernet0/2 is up, line protocol is down

Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet, address is 0009.b703.b91a (bia 0009.b703.b91a)

Re: 2950T:Copper Gig, Crossover GigabitEthernet0/2 is up, line p

Are you using Four Twisted-Pair Crossover Cable?

Its different for 1000BaseT...
