From net/bmon description:
``Bmon is an interface bandwidth monitor. It is able to generate and
draw three types of diagrams: The overview diagram which is a list of
all interfaces and their send/receive rates. A very MRTG like
graphical diagram in ASCII showing the rate over a specific time
period in a bar diagram. The details diagram which contains all
counters of an interface such as total bytes sent/received, errors,
compressed packets and so on.''
It might be that this is a bug in bmon, although it shows up only
on tap(4) interfaces in NetBSD.
If you are sure I made a mistake and it's a bug in that software,
feel free to close the PR. For me, it looks like there's something
not NULL-terminated in NetBSD, but YOU are the NetBSD masters,
not me ;)
