I have reproduced the problem with one-line test.
     ./nl-route-get 192.168.1.1
The problem is with this message:

-- Debug: Sent Message:
--------------------------   BEGIN NETLINK MESSAGE 
---------------------------
   [HEADER] 16 octets
     .nlmsg_len = 20
     .nlmsg_type = 18 <route/link>
     .nlmsg_flags = 773 <REQUEST,ACK,ROOT,MATCH>
     .nlmsg_seq = 1193143772
     .nlmsg_pid = 8233
   [PAYLOAD] 16 octets
     00 1d fa 20 00 00 00 00 81 0e 02 00 00 00 00 00       ... ............
---------------------------  END NETLINK MESSAGE 
---------------------------
it starts dump and requests ACK.
