Subject2.4.0-test11 af_packet/tcpdump/routing bug?
The tcpdump program (tcpdump -p -i ppp1 -s 1500 not port login) will
not report any packets after adding a default route to eth0 in the setup
below. The packet generating command is ping 192.168.2.42

It has been verified at the ppp1 peer that packets really arrive there via
ppp. Tcpdumping eth0 locally also confirms that packets don't go via eth0.

After adding/deleting the default route tcpdump needs to be restarted
to notice the difference. It uses the af_packet kernel module and maybe
its usage count must drop to zero temporarily to make a difference (I
don't know).
