P.S. The only sure way of eradicating this Cisco bug from the Internet is
to convert the Internet to IPv6. The bug doesn't affect Cisco's IPv6 code
and older routers whose IOS cannot be upgraded also cannot do IPv6 so
they  cannot be used in an IPv6 Internet. Food for thought...
Right, because the IPv6 code is guaranteed to have no bugs of its own.
