Hmm. All I've got handy is TCP/IP Illustrated, Vol2, and I couldn't find
a conclusive answer in a few minute's looking. It seemed to imply that
having two default routes wasn't something that could happen (i.e.,
setting a default route wipes out any existing default route).

I'd be interested to see what the output of `route -n` is on your
system, John.
