I keep noticing the following strange error occuring while adding
interface aliases (i.e. ifconfig xxN inet alias hostname)

  ifconfig: SIOCAIFADDR: File Exists

This error seems to have no effect at all and the alias gets added,
but its weird and disturbing.

This is on i386 current as of a few weeks ago, by the way.

Anyone know what the deal is?
