Looks like a bug in SIOCIFCONF.  It's giving an interface structure with
no name.

Try editing common/discover.c, here:

        /* Cycle through the list of interfaces looking for IP addresses. */
        for (i = 0; i < ic.ifc_len;) {
                struct ifreq *ifp = (struct ifreq *)((caddr_t)ic.ifc_req + i);

Just after this line, add:

		if (ifp->ifr_name[0] == '\0')

Either way, I suspect this is a linux kernel bug.
