Its an ethernet bridge with 802.1 spanning tree support.

Its self learning. I've not released the tools generally however as
I am not confident the bridge code is stable or solid, and I want
to add things to it, like protocol level selection.

Thanks for the bug report. I'll try and do some more testing.
