Description jlewis 1999-11-11 01:07:07 UTC
In previous releases, netstat -ci would display stats for
network interfaces continuously.  In 6.1, it shows stats
once, then crashes.

I've checked this on multiple 6.1, 5.2, 5.2 (with 2.2 kernel
upgrades), and 6.0 systems.  All (and only) the 6.1 systems
exhibit this problem.
