Actually it was much worse when the Washington DC IETF was on the
mbone in December of 1993 (the NSS was/is fine in this regard, though
in 1993 the routing software had a very rough time with the high level
of route flap).  At that time mrouted's method of tunnelling was
changed to avoid the problem.
