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?
Seems like a persistent routing loop. One possibility I've
heard about is the persistent routing loops that can occur if an internal
router is not situated topologically close to its BGP route reflector:
Does anyone have any idea of if/how often these types of persistent loops
occur in practice? I guess there would be no way to really tell if this
was the cause without having some knowledge about the internal topology...
