Hallo Thomas,

* Thomas Graf <tgraf@xxxxxxx> [20050410 23:50]:

That could really be the case:

- In my test with vanilla 2.6.11.7, there was no other appletalk
  station on the net -> refcnt was -256
- On my working system, I use a single route and get refcnt = -1
- When I first tried appletalk without configuring anything but the
  interface and PearPC with Mac OS X runnning on the other side, refcnt
  was -2

I'll try to double-check that tomorrow.

Greets, Felix
