You might be getting that because of the loopback device in the network
configuration.  slink had the network & lo device defined in
/etc/init.d/network, but in potato this is superseded by interfaces
(/etc/network/interface).  But if you still have the old slink file in
place, it will be used and may give a SIOCADDRT complaint on boot.

The change occured when netbase was changed. /etc/init.d/network should
contain a message about it that you can read.
