I've got a 1.5Q kernel from ~ 12/29/00 running on my laptop and
while attempting to track down some issues with my new lucent
802.11b card found an interesting symptom...
If I start a ping over the 802.11 network and then start up a
'tcpdump -n -e -i wi0', the ping spontaneously stops reporting
answers back. The minute I kill the tcpdump, I once again see
replies to my ping.
Is this fallout from the PFIL_HOOKS changes that were done and
un-done a few times in the recent past, does wi0 not deal well
with BPF, or is this an actual bona-fide bug?
Please let me know, if I don't hear anything I'll send-pr it in
a day or two.
