Running pump when pump already running destroys existing routes

I'm using pump-0.8.3-2. Running pump the first time correctly puts my eth0
interface under management and sets up the routes correctly. Running pump
a second time give an "Operation failed." message and deletes all routes
associated with the interface under management as well as the default
route. This will effectively disable networking on the machine if the
interface under management is the internet interface.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run /sbin/pump. Run /sbin/route to see that proper routes were set up.
2.Run /sbin/pump again. Notice that routes associated with the interface
under management have now disappeared.
3.killall pump and run /sbin/pump to return everything to normal.
Actual Results: Kills routes associated with interface under management.
Expected Results: Should do nothing or just print interface status.
Should just print interface stats or usage. Should not disrupt existing
interfaces under management.
I believe pump is meant to be run to get it to manage interfaces only, not as a
status tool. "It breaks when I do that!" "Don't do that."
Apologies for the unresponsiveness of the previous pump packager...
