Problem with routing decisions, and multihop (solved)

Argh. Stupid me..............
The tables 201 and 202, who decide the route for packets with already
defined source addres were in the rules that way:
The routing rules are:
0:      from all lookup local
50:     from all lookup main
201:    from iif eth2 lookup 201
202:    from iif eth1 lookup 202
222:    from all lookup 222
32766:  from all lookup main
32767:  from all lookup default

Look at the terrible "iif ethx"!!!!!!!!! The packets were routed _at
random_ by the 'equalizing routing decision', even if with decided
address. Argh.
Solution: there should not be "if ethx" in the routing rule matching

Now it works.

Even though, I'd prefer to get the Julian's patches working. When I
try them, all packets go to the same interface (the first hop). I'll
keep on working...

Always, always, there is the deadly "user fault". :)))

Thanks for your support!
