I am inclined to doubt it, and the principal reason is that the
four-command "fix" I gave works equally well if I add "alias" to the
end of the second ifconfig command, the one that re-adds the address.
The resulting address looks the same when reported by ifconfig -au as
the version without "alias", for what that may be worth.

I'll have a look at that. It'll mean yet more hackery in rc.d/network,
though, which is why I can't try it quite as on-the-spot as I can
adding "alias" to the ifconfig command.
