This is actually happening in libc/net.
inet_pton4() uses the .'s as a way to figure
out how to assign dotted-decimal. 

The "work around" is to assign this way:

deimos# route add -net 224.0
deimos# route show
Routing tables

Destination       Gateway            Flags 
default          UG          link#1             U        00:b0:c2:89:af:1b  UH        00:b0:d0:e1:5f:44  UH       00:b0:d0:de:49:df  UH     
loopback          UGR    
localhost          UH          UG  

Otherwise, just using 224 causes inet_pton4
to translate it differently. I don't really
see a way to "fix" this.

I will close this in awhile if no one objects.
