I have been looking at this code for a week now. Every solution I came up with
that solved the original problems introduced new ones -- usually with adjacency
remove expecting an adjacency that did not exist. In the end I came to the
conclusion it is not possible to maintain an all_adj_list when the upper tree
can have multiple paths to the top device. If someone thinks otherwise I am
happy to test a patch.
