NetBSD blah 1.6ZL NetBSD 1.6ZL (BLAH) #30: Mon Mar 29 10:07:04 EEST 2004  blah@blah:/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/BLAH i386

Trying to run "/usr/sbin/ipfs -W", as in shutdown if ipfs=YES, produces
an error instead of expected files. This is what I get:

# /usr/sbin/ipfs -W
state:SIOCSTGET: Bad address
Exit 1

# ls -la /var/db/ipf/
total 1
drwx------  2 root  wheel  512 Mar 29 13:06 .
drwxr-xr-x  9 root  wheel  512 Mar 30 13:16 ..
-rw-------  1 root  wheel    0 Mar 30 13:51 ipstate.ipf

Thus, ipfilter state information is not kept through reboots, etc
(as they did with previous ipfilter version [3.4.29?]).

With verbose output, I get:
# /usr/sbin/ipfs -v -W
Turn lock on
Lock now on
Getting state from addr 0x0
state:SIOCSTGET: Bad address
Turn lock off
Lock now off
Exit 1

Set 'ipfs=YES' in rc.conf
Run '/etc/rc.d/ipfs stop', or '/usr/sbin/ipfs -W'
