Well, it seems that as long as you had forwarded packets and a route not
yet cached in nh_rth_input, we were using a brand new route (and correct
one)

But as soon as a locally generated traffic did cache a route in
nh_rth_input, forwarded packets immediately were using this cache and
were delivered (and dropped) to local host.

Maybe my patch is not the good fix, but at least its a step in
understanding the problem.

Thanks
