Additional info:

Kernels up to 2.6.24-rc8 never have this problem and allowed me to change
default route to any dev!

Possibly fixed in tonight's 2.6.24-7 kernel. There were some problems with
selinux -- you can test by adding "enforcing=0" to the kernel boot options and
see if that makes it work.
Comment 2 denis ivanov 2008-01-30 17:42:08 EST
Just updated to kernel-2.6.24-9.fc9.i686

Problem is not fixed!

selinux is disabled in /etc/selinux/config

$ selinuxenabled || echo selinux disabled
selinux disabled

Should I try append enforcing=0 to kernel options?

seems fixed with fresh 2.6.25-0.95.rc4.fc9
