Re: route not being deleted from wm0

I often move my laptop between wired (wm0) and wireless (wpi0)

fine.  However, when I go the other way, there's a subnet route that

in one of the pieces it depends on that wpi0 doesn't use?  I believe
hubertf has run into the same thing; see the comment about 'route flush'

--Steve Bellovin,
In case you run routed:
As for missing routes wrt/ WLAN I have another datapoint. When an interface
has too many errors (wpi0 can do that) routed can decide that this is a bad interface and disable that - it looks like the routed got lost (see log messages in /var/log/messages). routed's behaviour may not be the best here in wlan world as routed even manages to
kill the interface with the default route leaving you disconnected :-(.
