That's the wireless interface.  When the wireless interface is on it 
gets an IPv4 address.  When it's off, it gets this weird IPv6 address.  
I tried "ifdown ath0", but it said "ath0 not configured", so I used 
"ifconfig ath0 down" and that did the trick.

Nope, problem still there.

Wasn't the routing table supposed to take care of that?

Ideas?  I'm scratching my head in bewilderment.
