	I haven't tested 2.6.22dr1 of yet but I have generated a patch file
against it patching netlink_shunt_eroute for this problem.  It's
basically my earlier suggested patch (with one stupid typo fix from
merging two changes) and rebased to 2.6.22dr1 to compensate for an
offset.  This time attached as a file if you choose to use it.  I've
built Fedora 10 rpm's with the 2.6.21 flavor of this patch and it's
running on the impacted gateway now.
