I have noticed that several of the network status tools will hang in mid
report. For instance, route will often pause during its table printout.
ipfwadm -M -l or ipfwadm -F -l will do the same. The pauses are either
temporary or indefinite. They occur at random times in the printout.
There are no error messages from the console or syslog. Whats going on???
