Hello there.

Im not sure if this is the right place for my problem.

standard PC, 1x 3c509, 2x 3c509B, IDE,...


It seems that NetBSD-current and the snapshot of march 15th has a 
problem with receiving multicast ethernet frames which results in
no operation of gated. Tested the same configuration on NetBSD-1.3.3
which worked fine - i.e. gated joins the area except for the lack of 3c509B 
support (which is why I tried -current).

tcpdump -p shows now multicast frames from foreign hosts.

If you run tcpdump without -p (-> set IF to prom. mode) gated receives
multicast frames as it should and joins the area.

ifconfig -a shows "MULTICAST" on for all interfaces (ex0/1/2). beside this
problem all interfaces work fine.
