ah.. not spurious.

the server i have has no network connectivity via that interface while
this is going on.

anyway... i rebooted the machine and (so far, touch wood, fingers
crossed) it hasnt shown the problem so far. (odd cause i rebooted the
thing several times last friday and it didnt clear the problem).

/before/ the reboot i set multicast_filter_limit=1, downed the
interface, removed the module and upped it again (after waiting) but
this made no difference. however, the reboot (with this parameter set)
made a difference where before reboots made no difference.

anyway, Richard, have you spoken to andrey ( -
current maintainer) about your fix and whether it is proper or not?
