Hi, very surprise your mail.  Now, I have check in 2.4.2 kernel.  I found 
multicast loopback in ip_output.c in line "Multicasts are looped back for other 
local users".  I have mark out this case and test it.  It can pass mutlicast.  

It's not right correction for this multicast loop back.  I will recorrect this 
case again.

Hmm, this means that a packet went through PRE_ROUTING, FORWARD and
POST_ROUTING, then hit loopback.

It's kinda wierd behaviour: multicast packets will pass through
PRE_ROUTING, FORWARD, POST_ROUTING (ip_mc_output), then net_rx,
net_rx_action, ip_rcv, then ???.

I'm surprised you don't get more messages, but they're fairly

Premature optmztion is rt of all evl. --DK
