It has nothing to do with routing.  I'm not familiar enough with KLIPS
but I'd expect the following to apply to it as well as 26sec which I
can vouch for.

This will get added as a policy (or eroute in KLIPS terminology) with
a priority that is above the policy with the bigger rightsubnet.
So any traffic going towards that subnet will match this policy (unless
there is another one that's even more specific), hence bypassing IPsec.

So with KLIPS even if your route says that the packet should go through
ipsecX I'd still expect it to go out unencapsulated.  Can someone who
has read the KLIPS code confirm this?
