Indeed. I have several /24's to manage, and alias the bulk of them to
the NIC on the server(s). But, having /identical/ configurations/setups
of FreeBSD, and rbldnsd on two different servers; the recent RELENG_6
server desires/requires no alias on lo0, and happily provides a 127.0.0/24
While the same setup on a 7-RC3 will only provide 127.0.0.1. Which
brings me to my original question; What's different on 7 regarding the
127.0.0/24 block?

Thank you very much Andy, for taking the time to respond.
