           Summary: "Tunnel ethernet" always uses next tap-device
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.3p2
          Platform: ix86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: h.goebel at goebel-consult.de

When using "Tunnel ethernet", the client always uses the next available
device number. Options like "-w 11" or "-w 11:any" are ignored.

This makes "Tunnel ethernet" unusable.

Debug-output seam okay:

  debug1: Requesting tun.
  debug1: sys_tun_open: tap7 mode 2 fd 7
  debug1: channel 1: new [tun]

but 'ifconfig -a' reports:
  tap11   Link encap:Ethernet  Hardware Adresse ....
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
