I've seen this when the IP number is not in the network defined by the
IP number and netmask bound to that interface.  The organization I worked
for had a single class B subnet which they subnetted into multiple class
C subnets, but they passed traffic from more than one class C subnet at
the same time through the building switches and FreeBSD didn't like it.
