why isn't masquerade working?

This is the first time I ever see this kind of problem... maybe it's
because I have such a weird configuration right now.
I'm testing a host with two internet connections.
the default route is only one of the two connections. The other link
is not involved at all. However, I set a rule in OUTPUT mangle that
will mark icmp traffic and then I have an ip rule that forces it to
use a routing table that is configured to use the "unused link".
I thought that it meant that icmp would come out from that interface..
and as I am masquerading traffic through that interface, the src
address would be set to that interface's address.
It's a BIG surprise to see that it's not happening. I tcpdumped
traffic and noticed that traffic is coming through the unused
interface... but still has the src address of the other interface. Is
And how can I make it to use the "correct" address?
