That's how I have things set and it wasn't switching the 2nd interface.

However, I think that may be due to the IPFW rules on one interface
blocking CARP multicast packets on that interface, while they were going
through correctly on the 2nd interface. I'll see if I can schedule a manual
test later this week now that IPFW is configured correctly.

Thanks for the confirmation of things are supposed to work.
