Well over a year ago we ran into situations where a normal Access Grid

lost their RIP default route.
No: most switches by far work *just* fine.
Only if you want snooping features, or the switch uses a broken logic (see
the issues draft) you have problems..
Darn right I want packets on a segment to only go to the appropriate output
ports. If I wanted a single collision domain I wouldn't buy a switch.
