NetBSD 6.1.3 (GENERIC) amd64
Hi folks,

I have a NetBSD 6.1.3 (GENERIC) amd64 and a problem that pflogd ignores
snaplen setting. It seems to be lower than 116.

I also tried to open it here on FreeBSD to rule out the possibility
that it would be tcpdump's fault, but it is not, here it gives the same
problem with hdr length too small for IPv6 packets. IPv4 works.
There is also no problem when looking at pflog network device directly.

So my conclusion is that there is something wrong with pflogd.
And yes, I tried to rise pflogd -s setting far above 116, it did not
