I don't have bridging compiled on either of my systems that went kaput.
However, one thing I have noticed in common with a lot of the other
reports is that they have ip_alias turned on and/or are doing routing.
Since both of the systems I tried it on are "production" systems, I
can't really go experiment on them (I shouldn't have tried 2.0.31-pre9
on them either, really).
