Could you please send me (off-list) the acutal numbers that you are
seeing, a debug trace from softflowd, along with the tcpdump trace
that you are capturing.

To get a debug trace from softflowd, just get modify your command above
to record output to a file:

softflowd -D -i sis1 -v 5 -n accounting:2100 >/tmp/softflowd.debug 2>&1
