    Alarm handler never gets called. I put a print statement there to notify me :(

    if the timeout is reached before i ping 10.0.0.1 in another terminal, the Net::Pcap::loop returns and executes the alarm() handler before continuing the process the packet! what?!
      Nice to see it's not just me, that's got a packet to his head. Why stick to Net::Pcap if it's broken? What did you use instead?
