Subnetting with NicheLite

I'm using the NicheLite networking stack on a Coldfire 52233 processor.

 

If the subnet mask is set to 0.0.0.0, then everything works fine, I can communicate with the Coldfire by adding a route table entry to the workstation.  Coldfire and workstation are on different subnets.

 

However, if I set any subnetmask, and DHCP is not in use, then the device does not respond to pings or any other requests to it.  The ARP who-has/tell communication looks good, but the device won't answer the ping.

 

It seems like the device just won't respond to activity off its subnet, with a subnetmask set.  Other tcp/ip implementations I'm familiar with work fine with just the entry in the workstation routing table.  Is there some reason the NicheLite stack is so picky?
