Nice to hear that.

I need some multicast test results with this patch:

Further, Jochen Kunz reports me network problems with age(4),
which he can't reproduce with fxp(4).
When he uses age(4) with nfs over udp, then processes accessing
nfs hang in state 'D'. With nfs over tcp, transfer is very slow.
In both cases, he gets 'watchdog timeout's.

I have no idea why and I also don't know if the bug is in nfs
or in age(4).
