Thanks again, I will. I'm kind of puzzled by the need to set IP on all
bridge members, whereas setting IP on the bridge itself should suffice.
And I am kind of not able to overcome unrelated problem I create by adding
physical interface to bridge: I have DHCP server on that same machine 
which (no matter whether DHCP server is jail or on host machine itself)
gets blocked when I make physical interface member of a bridge, although
it is my understanding that the bridge works on the same layer, so
something is wrong with what I'm doing.
