It is normal/OK in the sense that it is implemented this way
since day one. Since the RPF interface does *not* change the
(S,G) entry with the information spt-pending is indicating that
this entry is willing to switch once there is really a different
RPF interface and this why we save state. It is not causing
interop. problems and it is not against the RFC...

Since you know now what it means it should not be irritating
