Interesting.  I found the fixes on vangogh in /pub/kls/radix-v3.  The
README explains the kind of problems that it addresses and these are
*precisely* the problems that we are having at the moment.  Specifically,
losing routes because of duplicate keys from supernetted routes are a
real problem in the current pre-fix code.

Is there any chance of pointing me at some of the people who're having
problems with them ?  In view of what you say, perhaps I should find out
about their experiences before trying out code on a live network :-(

Thanks for the answer in any case, chris.
