Here's a datapoint where it works correctly. I have four systems in a
192.168.1.0 network behind a gateway router providing NAT and reserved
# ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:03:47:90:C2:D7
inet addr:192.168.1.4 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
(blah blah blah...)

config look like?
