Hello, and thanks for the reply.
In short; yes, the 7-RC3 returned just that.
In long; Both servers have the same (and only) entry:
/etc/defaults/rc.conf: ifconfig_lo0="inet 127.0.0.1"
no more, no less.
The RELENG_6 server reports:
lo0: flags=8049 mtu 16384
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000 inet6 ::1 prefixlen
128 inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
The 7-RC3 did not (I'd provide the output, but I've since added
and activated an entry in /etc/rc.conf that provides a /24 on
lo0). Since I'm only /really/ interested in SWIP'ing 3 IP's out of
the the block 254 will be more than enough.

I don't know what to say. It's (as you've no doubt already
discovered) driving me nuts!

Anyhow, thanks again for taking the time to respond. I appreciate
it.
