The network programs on out FC1 machine is calculating the wrong
broadcast address. For a machine with ip: and 
netmask:  the broadcast address should

However, running ifconfig eth0 I get  Bcast:

This causes problems with commands that do broadcasts.

Can anyone comment on this or indicate a cure for this error.
