But perhaps it solves the problem that GV has mentioned (and I suspect is a
separate problem to mine). It does, however, appear to change --iflist quite
a lot as it no longer shows any interfaces that are down (e.g. my Broadcom
gigabit Ethernet adapter that's enabled but doesn't currently have a network
cable plugged into it):

David, was that intentional? All previous versions of nmap that I can
remember have listed the down interfaces too.

No, that wasn't intentional. I misunderstood part of the previous code.
But it might have been in error anyway:

Anyway, the attached patch will hopefully fix the interface alias
issue and report interfaces with --iflist in the same way as before,
i.e., showing down interfaces. I also attached a cumulative patch so
you can see how this patch differs from the last one.

I committed the patch so please try Subversion or the next release to
see if this problem is fixed for you. You may have to use the -S (spoof
source address) option to make Nmap use the right interface alias.
