Difference between vlan pseudo interfaces and physical interfaces?


are there any differences in application between vlans and physical 
network interfaces when it comes to non-IP protocols?

I just rototilled my home network for a vlan capable switch, and found 
that the Netatalk 2 atalkd refuses to work with vlan interfaces:

# kdump
 19528      1 atalkd   CALL  ioctl(4,SIOCGIFADDR,0x7f7fffdbb950)
 19528      1 atalkd   GIO   fd 4 wrote 144 bytes
 19528      1 atalkd   RET   ioctl -1 errno 49 Can't assign requested 

-- is atalkd being too picky here, or is there a fundamental 
incompatibility for ddp packets?
