Hi Tim,

I can run tests if needed. I will try to, in order:
1- Get a wireshark trace to try and figure out as much as possible
2- Submit a patch if I can manage the time

As for a test environment, that can be arranged if you feel like it.
1- Download 
2- Install QEMU with VDE support (on Debian, you need only install
vde2 for that: http://wiki.debian.org/QEMU#QEMU_networking_with_VDE )
3- Save the attached script into the same folder as the aforementioned
openwrt image and run it as root (I haven't bothered to get the
permissions right yet to get it to run as a user)

4- openWrt should boot up properly, but you won't be able to connect
to it from your host because the script assumes the IP address of the
openWrt image's br-lan interface is while openWrt
defaults to IIRC.
To be able to connect to the web interface through the host (and test
wget from there), you'll need to either:
a) edit openwrt's /etc/config/network file (with vi) so the 'lan'
stanza's ipaddr option is '' rather than ''
b) edit the script so it uses 192.168.1.x/24 addresses (I didn't like
that because I need to connect many things on this box and they all
default to either the 192.168.0.x/24 or the 192.168.1.x/24 subnets)

I'll let you know if I get any development on this bug.
