One more reply to this, I inserted some debugging info, and all
addresses that the kernel saw on this ioctl so far are:
the machine's address
the machine's broadcast address which I used in testing Postfix' patches <- that's a piece of junk <- that's a piece of junk

I already used ifconfig on that machine to display configuration data.

I'll see if other addresses turn up.
