	I'm fairly sure that is not the case anymore.

	From what I can tell this time it was not ciscos fault.  It
appears that the vendor that had the problem just had an issue with
a specific "valid" announcement that others propogated to it.

	What is interesting is one could use this to see what
providers are using vendor "X" at exchange points.
