Sorry, Apparently I can't comment directly on the bug tracker.
I'm refering to:

I've had the same problem on our cluster.

Just meant to say that the following patch in seems to resolve the issue:

                _interfaze = NetworkInterface.getByInetAddress(address);
                for (Enumeration<NetworkInterface> e = _interfaze.getSubInterfaces(); e.hasMoreElements(); ) {
                  NetworkInterface sub = e.nextElement();
                  for (Enumeration<InetAddress> ee = sub.getInetAddresses(); ee.hasMoreElements(); ) {
                    InetAddress ad = ee.nextElement();
                    if (ad.equals(address)) _interfaze = sub;

I must admit the Java API is ugly and it's rather awkward that NetworkInterface.getByInetAddress doesn't directly return the correct subinterface.

Hope this helps.
