Although no one replied I'd like to post the solution to this for the
to potentially help anyone reading this in the future. The first few
minutes the router is booted (all interfaces are up during this

# sh ip route | inc 3.88
C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

Then for some reason 5-10 minutes later it would change to:

# sh ip route | inc 3.88
C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

Numbering Mu1 fixed it. I still have no clue why this was happening
but am content with it being fixed. I have even less of a clue as to
why this just started happening out of the blue one day after being up
for many months with no config changes, interface flaps or even user
logins but am happy that it's working.
