FWIW I have also observed that it is necessary to specify the
interface when doing per-packet load balancing across multiple PVCs,
e.g. as when doing load balancing across multiple DSL circuits. I
believe I mentioned this a while ago, but in a thread on a different
topic. That solution was the result of grasping at straws: it seems
that the router ought to be able to intuit the interface from the
target address, but apparently can not.
