This is my point - I'm not running routed, or bgp (actually, I've never heard
of bgp). The network is not configured by DHCP (everything is setup with
static IP addresses)
If I look through the task list and disregard any shells, X and other stuff
that can't (shouldn't !) have anything to do with this, I'm left with...
pflogd (scaping the barrel here...)
...and that is literally it ! Unless inetd or cron are running something that
I don't know about (I've not changed either since installation). Clearly
something is responding to the network fault I described and fiddling with
the routing table, but I have no idea what.
