Yes, someone f*cked something up. This occurs starting with a
certain amount of physical (read: announced) devices in the
kernel. I don't remember the number but I think it was something
crazy like 10. How many interfaces do you have?

Been there, seen that and vomited. Since I don't use the ifconfig
and route tools anymore anyways it wasn't an issue for me, that
means I didn't investigate any further. The problem is not present
if you use the appropriate tools to setup networking under Linux,
namely iproute2.

ip link show
ip addr show

and so on ...

Take care,
