Indeed, it is the same bug. But I don't quite agree with:
This is due to NetBSD handling tap device name differently,
it does not allow an fstat, but uses an ioctl instead.
Below is a patch I used to fix this.
(found here: http://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=37003)
In my oppinion (correct me if I'm wrong) the specified device ("-net
tap,ifname=tapX") /dev/tapX should be used as parameter for the tap_open
function. The provided patch (for PR#37003) might be the better
solution. Since I'm quite new to NetBSD and its internals. it is up to

Btw: PR#37003 was reported in 2007. How comes the same malfunction is
