thats interesting data, and i think i know what the bug is:

we only insert the candidate route into the RIB on initial,
reception of a HNA network. now if the TC entry vanishes for some
reason (e.g. timeout) the candidate route is gone, while the
HNA entry is still alive which is not quite right.
so a properly refreshed HNA network never makes its way into
the routing table.

i have put in a little bugfix into the dev-repo which always
attempts to insert candidate routes when a HNA route is received.
