comment How can I prevent the locally administered bit being set on network bridge MAC addresses in Windows?
I don't see how that is broken behavior. It created a new interface and needed a new macid for the new interface. I do believe that you physical interface is also listening on its original macid.

@DavidSchwartz: The reason for that, my guess is, that Windows creates a virtual interface and it needs a macid for that virtual interface. To generate that macid it takes the macid from the actual interface and sets the 7th bit to 1. But why does this matter?

Of course, all this is just convention. Convention dictates that any mac address that is manually generated must have the 7 most significant bit set as 1. There is no real guarantee anywhere, any one can come spoof their mac address to anything and mac address spoofing is a common attack vector on LANs.

Nah, there is nothing stopping someone thing from using the same macid. Somewhere in the world there might be a program which generates this macid randomly and assigns it to an interface, out of pure coincidence you macid is no longer unique... The default macid are guaranteed to be unique for every interface as long as no one cheats :)
