Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fixes the above issue with an early check for $FOUNDMACADDR.
Any comments on this bug? It's a easyfix with patch.
Slightly different fix in 8.08-1; you want to just drop out of the FOUNDMACADDR
processing and proceed to the later block.
