	I notice you aren't specifying a broadcast or netmask address,
this might be a problem if the ln driver doesn't figure them out
automagically. Try

ifconfig ln0 192.168.0.X broadcast netmask

	If the kernel you're running still says ln instead of le, it
probably doesn't have the kernel "smarts" to set
broadcast/multi/netmask/etc. automagically. Just a thought, if cleaning
the selector switch doesn't fix it.
