 Shouldn't there be a DETACHED flag in the ifconfig output, then?

 Not easily.  The testbed in case is generating public reports that are
 supposed to reflect the true state of -current as a function of the
 CVS source date.  To test something that is not actually -current,
 I'd have to set up a separate instance of the testbed.

 It is cabled to a 10baseT (sic) hub.  I could try a 100baseTX switch
 and see if that makes a difference.
