bug with interfaces that are not up

On a Linux 2.6.20-16-server build, with a ~3 week old version of Argus3:

If ones config file has:

    # fgrep eth /etc/argus.conf


    /sbin/ifconfig eth5 up

has not been run, then argus will not collect most traffic
on eth0 and eth1 (even though they are up).  It drops all
but about .5% of the traffic.

Obviously not a config I should do, but since there wasn't
any traffic on eth5 yet, I had not worried about it.
