Frank, what we really need is an option to turn off scanning when the
local IP addresses are static. Many systems have static addresses, it's
desktops, laptops, etc. which are likely to be using DHCP and their IP
addresses are constantly changing. Certainly all of the UDel machines
that Dave uses have static addresses so he certainly doesn't need it to
rescan the interfaces.
