I THINK I saw ipmasq installed on my system. (which would mean it was
upgraded since dist-upgrade upgrades everything) but... I don't use it
I have ip masq compiled into my kernel (I only have 2 things compiled
as modules... lp and ppa ...cuz they can't both be compiled in ;) )
AND I "rolled my own" ip masquerading setup (did that back when I was
on redhat)...so I don't really need it.

hmm do you remember if uninstalling it fixed the problem? if so
then I will try installing the newest version and
see if it re-creates the problem tonight
