And of course remove the route once you have logged out.

Otherwise you get this type of ickness:

10  router (x.x.x.x) 78.12 ms  70.308 ms  117.18 ms
11  pop (x,x,x,x)  101.556 ms  62.496 ms  62.496 ms
12  router (x.x.x.x)  blah ms  blah ms  blah ms  
13  pop (x,x,x,x)  blah ms  blah ms  blah ms  

and so on...
