I'm just trying out NFS on a i386/1.5_ALPHA2 system and have come across
a problem which may be a bug (and I may pr it if confirmed.)

I have a de0 network card which has a 24.x.x.x IP address and a
192.168.1.x aliases IP address. ipv6 is also configured for grins!

The kernel has NFSSERVER configured.

If I turn on rpcbind, nfs_server lockd and statd in /etc/default/rc.conf
then I find that I can no longer ping the aliases IP address.

At this stage I don't know if it is rpc, nfsd or whatever which is
screwing it up, I'll do some experimenting later. But with all these
set to YES then I should still be able to ping the alias IP address.

If anyone else can reproduce the problem or suggest a workaround I
would appreciate it.
