Hi folks,

I found a strange packet, which is generated by ping of Linux.
It is observed ID field of IP header in ping packet (Echo request) is always 0.

I confirmed this on kernel 2.4.18 and 2.4.21.
My colleague also confirmed this is fixed in kernel 2.5.74.

I hope this is fixed in next next 2.4.x release.

I am sorry if this had been fixed already.
