Subjectroute/ifconfig and .99
Something has changed in 1.3.99 regarding ifconfig and route.

Firstly, using ifconfig on an interface appears to install a route on that
interface - I think this is new.

Secondly, specifying a device on a route command seems to fail if it the route
is through a local interface.

What this comes to is that it is a little difficult to manage things on
machines with two (or more) interfaces on one ip address (in my case, the main
ethernet, a second one bridging to an expermental box, and a ppp link).

I am using net-tools-1.3.50-BETA6f, which I believe to be the latest,
recompiled on this kernel as well.

What gives?
