That thing's been bugging me too (but not enough to think about it) and
I'm glad to have seen it explained.  Looking closer, in my DHCP case,
the IP# is labeled "New Routers" by dhclient; aparently my ISP's routers
time-sharing the IP#.  It would make more sense for it to be my cable
modem, but I don't know why/how it would be changing MACs.  "arp -a"
DOES show the IP# as in the client.attbi.com domain which sounds like
it might be unique to a customer/client at any one time.  Anyone know?

(I which I knew how to shut the cable up.  I ran the cable halfway
'round the room so I could what the xfr light flash, but it's not useful
as there's continual traffic (1-3 Hz) to my NIC (but no further, AFAIK;
ipfw doesn't see anything more than I expect).)

Would the message be any clearer (ie, easier to figure out) ending "on
xl0's data link"?  (An OSI level 2 term, probably.)  No MACs moved on
xl0, of course.  I guess the MACs moved on "xl0", but it doesn't even
know about any IP addresses other than it's own, AFAIK, so the IP can't
move "on xl0", strictly speaking.  I might write a little patch for it.
