The network start|stop|restart script fails to set route to self
output of route -n lists routes for localhost and eth0 network
A manual entry in rc.local or Sxxnetwork fixed it
I trust you mean the route like:
x.y.1.154 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 eth0
where x.y.1.154 is your address.
This route is redundant, as the same behaviour is automatically included in the
installed local net route.
No clutter anymore.
