rtadvd requires specifying interface?

Hi all,

I am trying to run rtadvd(8) in a jail with an epair interface. However, I do
not receive any advertisement packets on any interface when I run:
# service rtadvd start

However, when I run rtadvd(8) manually and specify the interface as follows, I
receive packets.
# rtadvd -f epair1b

My /etc/rtadvd.conf is as follows:


Notice that epair1b is set here, but does not appear to work when run from
rc(8). Am I missing something?
