I think the configuration of the interfaces is relevant here. This bug seems
to be triggered by setting the gateway to an address that is not the ip or
peer address of any of the specified interfaces. See if you can make
something out of this. I would have to dive deep into the network code to
understand the pfinet/options.c gateway stuff. A quick look at pfinet when
it hung (with gdb) did not reveal much to me, might be dead lock somewhere.
