arplookup() in if_arp.c sometimes spews this message

    "arplookup: unable to enter address for %s (%s)"

and i thought i understood what triggered it, but apparently i'm
wrong.  or...i'm not the net.hacker i thought i was.

can someone please describe a packet or sequence of packets (i imagine
two at most) which will trigger this message?  i can manufacture
packets quite easily using bpf (except the ethernet source address),
but can't get this code sequence to trigger.
