Is this the actual value of $A, or is it, for instance, the IP address that
a script is pinging after it is run?  NetView omits octets containg zero
from the end of network names (network "220.0.0.0" becomes "220", for
instance).  If you try to run "ping 220" you will see that ping actually
interprets the IP address "220" as "0.0.0.220".  I believe this is a
function of the resolver library, so most commands work the same way.

I'm not sure how you would end up getting Netview traps about networks
passed to your script, though.

Hope this helps.  (If it didn't make any sense at all, I appologize.  Its
been a long day...)
