If you use a lot of LANWorkplace on pcs, it contains a bug that
generates duplicate ip address messages. These created a bit of
havoc on one of my internal (unix) firewalls that was setup to
be extremely (overly?) sensitive to this. LWPD, versions 4.x,
just a heads up.
(SuperTCP does not have this "feature". But we have also been
able to break this stack too often for comfort.)
