--- Comment #6 from Mason Loring Bliss <mason_at_blisses.org> ---
I have more detail. My X environment fires up barriec inside a new screen
session. I can sit there and watch it try to connect for ages. If I say
'ifconfig' to look at what's configured, that seems to trigger something.
It'll come back showing the interface down, but a dhclient fires up and
configured em0. I assume this means devd is taking action somehow, and will
try to track this further. (IP/MAC obscured)
