We are using VxWorks 5.5, Tornado 2.2.  We are issuing the following sequence of commands in order to change the IP address of our interface:

ifAddrDelete (delete the old address)
ifRouteDelete (we don't' need the route added by ifAddrAdd)

I can only run this sequence of commands approximately 170 times before we run out of system mbufs.  We get better results when we omit the call ifAddrDelete.  Is there a known bug in VxWorks where mbufs are not being released when the interface's address is deleted?  Are there different commands I should be using?
