netstat -i seems to report bogus collision counts.

Name  Mtu   Network     Address            Ipkts Ierrs    Opkts Oerrs  Coll
ed0   1500  <Link>      0.0.c0.2.61.6f    120764  4424   120133     0 8836391

The Coll number is much higher than the Ipkts/Opkts count (factor 73).
This would mean than the network is totally congested, but it isn't
(at least not that bad). I ran my computer totally disconnected from
any network this weekend, and could *still* observe collisions!

Somthing is weired....
