I'm not sure if we could find someone of this caliber to
run the test again. For once I must agree with Mike Smith ;-)

Clearly the page:

http://netgroup-serv.polito.it/winpcap/

says, "partially sponsored by MicroSoft Research".

IMHO, it bait -- bad bait at that. IMO, M$ has found
some hole in the FreeBSD kernel and is intending to expose it.
Although I suspect the hole's been cleaned up by now by core.

If Terry Lambert can chimes in, I know we might get some
real answers. I'm not convinced by this M$ agent.
