could you give some more details on this change ? Why is it not necessary
without VLANs ?
Actually it's also useful for cases without VLANs, e.g. if there has not
been any traffic yet. However if there is traffic it soon happens in both
directions and therefore claims are added and situation resolves automatically.
I had the situation that on some VLANs there were no traffic at all for some time
and when it suddenly started, the bla system did some weird things.
