I'm using redhat 2.4.9-21 source from 7.2 install & upgrade.
I have rechecked and truly I am not seeing packets go to the
wrong interface. Our ISP's would drop packets with the wrong
source net. My IP's are static. Perhaps that makes a difference?
My experience with tcpdump - in doubt, I don't trust it on the
same machine & verify it on the nexthop.
