If it crashed it's a bug.  I'm not pretty sure if we should implement
such UDP port scan, may be.  I'm still not quite sure if portscan 
is needed, mostly because commonly is taken as hostil activity.

In the case of MacOSX, it just call nmap, AFAIR.

This is strange, because to get the NIC information is not used
ifconfig at all.  It just use SIOCGIFCONF and such kind of ioctl
calls to get the information from a socket.
