Default Baselayout 2 - one more (unpleasant) surprise


on a machine with a ppp (ADSL) connection my
atm_over_ethernet bride always dies when started during boot.

I first tried to start it (after boot) via
/etc/init.d/net.nas0 restart

which reliably shows the same effect.

4 # /etc/init.d/net.nas0 restart
* Bringing up interface nas0
* Starting RFC 2684 Bridge control on nas0
* start-stop-daemon: caught an interrupt
* start-stop-daemon: /usr/sbin/br2684ctl died [ !! ] * ERROR: net.nas0 failed to start

But then I do it in two steps
/etc/init.d/net.nas0 stop
and afterwards
/etc/init.d/net.nas0 start

which (reliably) works.

5 # /etc/init.d/net.nas0 stop
* WARNING: net.nas0 is already stopped
6 # /etc/init.d/net.nas0 start
* Bringing up interface nas0
* Starting RFC 2684 Bridge control on nas0 [ ok ] * null ...

Needless to say that this has been working for years(!)
with baselayout 1.x,
and the package net-misc/br2684ctl hasn't changed for a long time.

So, what's going on and what to do about it?

Shall I make a bug report?

Many thanks for a hint,
