Bridging Broken in 1.2?

I've reported this problem before. The loadable bridge module in 
DragonFly is broken in that ARP is not handled correctly. The DragonFly 
box is unreachable from the bridged interfaces that have no IP address 

The solution is to build a custom kernel with "options BRIDGE" defined.

Joerg in his follow up said he doesn't want to support bridging as a 
module just yet.

bridging? I'm just trying to find out if it is
indeed broken before I spend a lot of time trying
to figure out if I've done something wrong.
