I've seen a number of people use the term "non-primary". What do you mean 
by that?

I think interfaces get named in the order they're found on the bus, but you 
might be able to override this if they use different drivers, by naming 
them explicitly in modules.conf.

Try using "lsof -i" to see what interface the process is actually listening 
on. tcpdump or ethereal (packet sniffers) can also be useful for figuring 
out what's going on.
