This looks exactly like a routing loop to me. Why do you think it is not a
I was assuming that any routing loop in the system would be transient, but
this one is not (the traceroute is still showing the same behavior). The
extent to which I see this also makes me think that there is something
else going on.
Do you think that it can be a real persistent routing loop (data packets
would actually shuttle between the two interfaces) as against some
wierdness because of traceroute?
