I found the bug. In one path, the host route calculation was being


    if ($optimize) {
	my $newip = inet_ntoa(inet_aton($dstip) & inet_aton($NETMASK));

	if (defined($netroutes{"$src:$newip"})) {
	    if ($netroutes{"$src:$newip"} ne $hop) {
		die("*** $0:\n".
		    "    network route mismatch: $src:$dst:$hop!\n");

	$netroutes{"$src:$newip"} = $hop;
	$type  = "net";
	$dstip = $newip;


If a NET route is already defined for a subnet because of a previous route
(to a different dst on the same LAN), it would skip doing the HOSTROUTES.
This problem wouldn't occur with links alone in the topology. Looks like
it was never caught because no one probably tried pinging IPs of all
interfaces while using LANs. Note that this problem wouldn't occur for
directly connected neighbors (even if they are on a LAN). The latter is
the reason why maryland folks didn't encounter this problem.

The bottomline: We need Dave (West)'s automated testing tool!

Fixed, committed and installed.

Mike, I have fixed the routes in your experiment. Just reboot your
