I'm running current as of 20030213 (not sure) and observe
a kernel crash after invoking
# ifconfig stf0 create && ifconfig stf0 destroy
two times in a row.
To be more precisely, I ran

----------------- 8< -----------------


while [ "" = "" ] 
        echo "counter:" $n

        echo create...
        ifconfig stf0 create
        echo set addr...
        ifconfig stf0 inet6 2002:1234:1234::1
        echo destroy...
        ifconfig stf0 destroy

        sleep 1
        n=$(($n + 1))

----------------- 8< -----------------

and got a kernel crash during the second 'destroy', i.e.
the 'echo destroy' appears followed by a prompt to the
kernel debugger.
(I tried this twice to be sure that this is repeatable.)

Anything related to this known?

Thanks in advance,
