Funny you should mention it, yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of my
discovering that bug (both dst ifindex and nexthop fields are populated
with 0's). If you don't need either of those fields the rest of the data
is fine, but be warned that it will completely break some third party
software (like Arbor PeakFlow, for example).
