Keep in mind that the ASN32 patch includes many changes for dump code  
- almost all code for TABLE_DUMP dumping was removed, and replaced by  
code to dump in TABLE_DUMP_V2 standard. There are also changes in  
other areas of the dump code, but not as major, as far as I remember.

Also, I've noticed that when I upgraded from quagga 0.96 to 0.99.6,  
all my keepalive-drop issues disappeared. With 0.96, quagga would  
come to a complete halt while doing a dump, which could take up to 3  
minutes. This could cause sessions to reset.
With 0.99.6, this has never occurred. I don't know whether the code  
improving this behaviour is also in 0.98...
