Bug Description

If the '-t' argument is missing, arpspoof should, according to its manpage, posion "all hosts on the LAN".
However, as of dsniff_2.4b1+debian-22 (available in quantal and raring), that does no longer work. arpspoof will start just fine, but never actually send out any ARP replies and also don't log anything to the console.

Everything works alright with dsniff_2.4b1+debian-21.1 (available in precise).
