tcpdump defaults to putting the interface in promiscuous mode while it is
running. This means that the interface will receive all packets on the wire.
The "-p" option disables that. "man tcpdump" for more information.
Also remember that switches and bridges can limit what goes down a particular
wire. (They try not to send things down a wire if they don't have to).
