Yah, as per previous p4p800 email, sk(4) is not happy. I started
debugging, there appears to be multiple problems with it. Googling
around, there's a bunch of similar reports for freebsd back in
april. Also compared out sk(4) to freebsd cvs... minimal changes.

Been meaning to send-pr, haven't got around to it yet. I'll let you
know if I beat you to it.
