Per and Danny
I added the ttl statement to the conf file and now get the expected
results in the multicast packets.

>From the html docs, it appears that the ttl command was added to
support the anycast mode.  While it might make sense for that, it
doesn't for multicast.

Maybe change the conf keyword to ttlanycast for its use and then
multicast not use the mapping at all.

I'm guessing the linux boxes I had tested were running a version that
didn't have this ttl mapping in place.

Thanks to everyone that looked into this.  I suspect more work is
