other networked machines can't traceroute the offending machine.

a persistent error reads

May 25 06:36:28 parzival inetd(419): auth/tcp: bind: Address already in
use

error occurs each time I execute the route command

here is the output from route:

I am obsessed with route. I checked it again! and discovered a new
entry:

localhost    *    255.255.255.255            UH    0    0    0    eth0
