Patches claiming to fix this were posted on ftp://sunsolve1.sun.com/pub/patches
103630-09: SunOS 5.5.1: ip ifconfig arp udp icmp patch
Well, today I installed that patch on Sparc10 and proceeded to copy and
paste the ping command from this message... I just got done reinstalling
the OS and reconfiguring the machine.
After I executed the ping, my machine not only rebooted but was unable to
load the kernel after that.
