	On a firewall with iy0 as one of the interfaces, it appears
that it stops receiving packets.  netstat -s and netstat -m do not
show any errors that would indicate why this is so.  running tcpdump
on the interface fixes the problem.
	It is not know how to make it happen, just that it does, from
time to time.
