Hmmm, if really that few, then system load cannot explain the problem
you saw.  And if it's not system load, the only thing I can think of
is that perhaps the debugging tests somehow introduce a logic error
when they are enabled.  But I have no idea how to start chasing that

It would be interesting to learn if you can reproduce the problem that way.
Actually, what would be really interesting to see is if you enable the
same debugging, but with no debugging output being recorded anywhere,
whether the routes are still lost...  That would help to conclude that there's
a programming error somewhere.
