arp entries become undeletable when an interface is shut down.

The system has two interfaces connected to the same network. One
interface is configured. Shutting down the active interface and
configuring the second interface causes arp entries for systems
on the network associated with both interfaces, e.g.

? ( at b8:27:eb:12:34:56 on iwn0
? ( at b8:27:eb:12:34:56 on wm0

You can however only delete one entry, the other persists and
is still used by the network stack.

# arp -d
# arp -na | grep
? ( at b8:27:eb:12:34:56 on iwn0
# arp -d
arp: writing to routing socket: No such file or directory
# arp -na | grep
? ( at b8:27:eb:12:34:56 on iwn0
