As far as I understand it, these are equivalent. In any case,
I also tried the 'official' RedHat way of creating an ifcfg-eth0:1
and doing ifup eth0:1. Quagga still does the same thing.
In fact, it's actually worse than I initially thought. Sometimes,
all the OSPF routes disappear and never come back when I
bring up eth0:1 or do the ip addr add, but restarting
ospfd gets them back. I'm not in a position to look at the
logs right now, but ospfd moans something about not being
able to find an ASBR for certain routes.
I'll post exact logs later.
