Several people have suggested that by doing an ifconfig alias host
instead of ifconfig host alias the problem goes away, but I was
already doing the former.

Several people have suggested that the problem is because I already
have the alias configured, but in fact this is happening at boot time
when my host alias first gets configured.

I suppose I'm going to have to delve into the code...
