BOOTFLASH: 7200 Software (C7200-BOOT-M), Version 11.1(19)CC1, EARLY
DEPLOYMENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Consider updating your bootflash to be somewhere near currrent
(something from 12.2T would be good, identical to the current version
your're running is best).  I've tracked down a couple of particularly
weird problems that turned out to be triggered by cruft that was
inherited from the initial bootflash image.  Now upgrading the
bootflash is the first thing I do.

Presuming you aren't running low on memory (show mem sum) or trying to
push a ton of packets through it, I'd say this is likely a
cutting-edge-code problem, not a platform problem, and a hardware
upgrade might not do anything to help you.  I don't know anyone who
is (admits to?)  using 12.2* in production.  You say you need MSDP and
SSM stuff that's only in this version; I don't know about
source-specific multicast, but MSDP is supported in 12.0S...

Thanks for the advice - we will try the bootflash upgrade and report back.
