Main is not printed only when the main table is
empty. The table name is printed only if there are nodes
in the table. May be all rules (ESRCH) and all routes (no Main)
are flushed.

printk for current->comm should show the process name
that removes the routes. If problem is ifup-local I remember
only for one difference: fib_trie can list before
other routes but ip route flush default simply removes all
routes, even on old kernels. May be route del default gw...
does not delete the default route and then
'ip route flush default' does the bad job.
