i have noticed this as well. i got around it by doing the ioctl a 2nd
time. works reliably so long as you make at least 2 ioctl()s, and as
ifconfig displays, they don't both have to be the same ioctl.

Why Linux? source code. POSIX. tcpip. job control. support from the authors.
drivers for most hardware. because one terminal or process is never enough.
forget the other O/Ss, i use Linux- the choice of a gnu generation.
