I have more info now.  I get this:

pinging penguin from packrat:

PACKRAT sends ARP WHO HAS PENGUIN, which penguin replies to.  Penguin sends
ARP WHO HAS PACKRAT, whic packrat replies to -- in a way.  I believe the
ethertype (displayed by tcpdump on packrat) for the ARP PACKRAT IS-AT was
0x0608, which is endian reversed.

Or am I way off base here?
