Quagga BGP crash

Our Dublin BGP router just died this morning. It looks like, that there is a bug, that causes Quagga (0.99.10 and as it seems 0.99.11) to crash, when it receives a 32-bit ASN in the as-path on certain peering sessions.

A post to the users list confirmed very quickly, that it was a bug and it wasn't an isolated incident, a work-around was found, implemented and we got things quickly back up and running.

Luckily, our BGP feeds are split over the Galway and Dublin BGP servers, so nobody really noticed.
