I found the issue. For whatever reason why it doesn't happen on 11.4,
an incoming ICMP Redirect message is coming from the gateway to direct
all traffic to a new gateway.
That definitely also happened on much older releases - it's a standard
network feature. It may be disabled, but probably shouldn't be.

I only disabled it because the 'route' isn't getting flushed from the
network stack when the network entry is removed.

The redirect poisoned the network stack since I can't connect to the
remote host unless I'm on the network where the redirect originated.


/usr/sbin/routef might be of some help.
