Dear Martin, sorry for my late answer,..., due to me experiments I was not
available under my primary ip for a while.

Non of thoose, the exact message is:

Sep 22 08:33:33 newby routed[717]: static route --> impossibly lacks ifp

Moreover it seams, that a routed host, is not able to remove a static default route 
he got durring boot up. I had to remove it to get it up working as expected.
