        Multicast programs shouldn't rely on the routing
table at all, IMAO. Unicast routing has nothing at all
to do with multicast routing, where a single address
means copying and forwarding to multiple different
segments, and the address has nothing at all to do with
the routing topology.
        That's why the scope_id should be set (and to
the proper index for eth0), but I think either strace
is lying to us here or they're using SO_BINDTODEVICE
or IP_MULTICAST_IF.
        But when it's breaking, I imagine it is ending
up on the wrong interface and thus the EINVAL... I
just don't see how some addresses still work while
others fail at the same time. :-)
