[syslinux] [tftp-hpa] [BUG] Bad src address on replies from aliased interfaces

we're running tftp-hpa on a machine which will have to accept packets on
an aliased IP (for service redundancy and fallback). The server is
reachable using the alias, but replies using the primary IP of the
interface, which provokes a timeout on the client.

The workaround is to run tftp stand-alone and to explicitly specify the
alias IP on the command-line -- however this is not very satisfactory,
as it needs human intervention.

Is there a bugzilla out there to report this ?
