/etc/rc.d/network has the following line in its start section:

        route add -inet -netmask 0xff000000 -reject

which, i would assume from reading it, sets up a blockhole route for through lo0 ( to be precise, since netbsd doesn't
do interface routing).

what confuses me is that it (a) doesn't seem to have any effect on the
routing table, and (b) always reports this:

	writing to routing socket: File exists
	add net gateway Bad file descriptor

which looks like an error.  is this "right"?
