I just figured out something interesting. Apparently there's a small timing
problem with setting up the NIC: If I put in a sleep 1 between setting up
the interface and setting up the gateway route, everything works pretty well.

So things now look like this:

/sbin/ifconfig lo
/sbin/route add -net netmask lo

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 a.b.c.d broadcast x.y.225.255 netmask
/sbin/ifconfig eth0:0 a.b.c.d broadcast netmask

sleep 1 # This does the trick

/sbin/route add default gw a.b.c.d netmask metric 1
