	If the first argument for Wake.pm is the broadcast address, 
	no packet is sent. This causes the problem when the
	target host requires IPsec, for pointing target host explicitly 
	does not allow sending the "plain" packet.
	Always. Pointing other hosts ( which must be alive ) may avoid
	this trouble in practice, but it is not cool.
	Update net/p5-Net-Wake to 0.02. This can manage breadcast address correctly, I guess.
