Bug#402730: ifplugd: Interrupts the system when running on non existent interface

Does changing the poll time (--poll-time / -t) help?
The bug still exist in the actual version. Changing the poll time to 5
seconds let the Video flicker every 5 seconds, so it does not really help.
Try it out on a non existent interface:
strace ifplugd -i eth6 -f -u0 -d10 -w -I -n -t 5
glxgears or in my case fgl_glxgears
Every 5 seconds, or the default 1 second ifplugd searches for the
interface and the fgl_glxgears stumbles.
