[quagga-users 14149] default routes from BGP & nothing in kernel routing table

Hello everybody,

I'm running a very basic configuration on my internal network with some
anycast DNS servers. On each server, I run FreeBSD and quagga. The server
lives in a /29 with two upstream Cisco L3 switches. From each L3 switch the
server receives a default route only. This all works as expected.

The problem is that although the BGP sessions come up and the routes are in
the BGP routing table on the server, a default route is never injected into
the server's kernel routing table.

Have I missed some configuration here, or is this a bug?

Some information:
