I was seeing arp entries on dom0 for itself using this mac address,
oddly enough I do not see this any more with

The whole time I thought this was expected behavior. Was something
changed recently that would affect this? I was seeing the identical
behavior on both my SMP and UP machines until today. Got to the point
where I was using bgp to route local host traffic through my gateway to
get the two dom0 peth0's tp talk to each other.

dom0-1 - 10 domU
dom0-2 -  3 domU

in the arp table, so one peth0 could not talk to other across subnet B.
