I'm sorry that my sloppyness brought up this discussion.
I recall that I tried to hunt down a bug and did lots of "service netif
restart". But on a local network with all essential servers on the same
net, I never faced a problem with routing.
If life gets too easy, people start digging for the reason of a problem
too deep when the framework does too much stuff automated ...
The knowledge of the fact that I also have to restart routing via a
script is sufficient for me - also the fact to know that netif restart
doesn't restart routing.
