This is caused by multiple ptp interfaces with the same peer address (192.0.2.100 in the above example). At least with SBC (AT&T), the actual IP there doesn't really matter, as it's just a way for the kernel to determine which interface to send the packet out on, and the other side will route the packet regardless. A simple iface up-script in mpd to change the peer IP to something else on each instance fixes the error nicely. This was for a multi-homed router project (2-4 DSL links, without ISP cooperation) that turns out to be quite functional.
