If you issue a /etc/rc.d/network restart with present xvif(4) and "auto_ifconfig" enabled, the rc.d/network will look for ifconfig_xvifXXX variables [1] . Given the eval line, it won't get the correct variable due to sh POSIX conventions for shell variables.


BTW, did you test the new name with ipf ? I think they should be
accepted properly, but better check now ...

Will do.
