Hello freebsd-network readers!
This is on FreeBSD 8.0-RC2 (sys/netinet/in.c is 22.214.171.124.2.1)
If I try to set permanent arp entry with "arp -s host etheraddr" and there
exists an "incomplete" entry for this host at the moment, then this "permanent"
entry will expire in 20 seconds.
If I set arp with "arp -S host etheraddr" - it will be really permanent.
It looks like with "-s" the flag of incompleteness isn't cleared.
Is this a bug or a feature?
