OK, problem 1 was fixed by upgrading to build 128a. Problem 2 still exists,
although wierdly the zone's networking is fine. The global zone is also fine
until I reboot - after that I cannot contact the default router (an ADSL
router) or any other machine. The non-global zone can successfully communicate
with the ADSL router and the internet.
