Yes, gated has a patch to handle the routes now.  ANS routers have been
upgraded on April 22nd.  This patch can be obtained from GateD
Consortium at Cornell.  Here is a copy of my message to bgp mailing

We have deployed a new version of gated on ANS (AS 690) routers over the
weekend.  This version has a fix to handle routes with AS paths that are
modified by Cisco routers via a configuration option in order to make
the path attribute look longer than it actually is.  Gated was
transitioning the bgp session to idle when it recieved such a route.
The patch for this bug can be found in GateD 3.5 Alpha 10 (see message
from GateD Consortium).  Thanks to all service providers for their
cooperation in this matter during the past few weeks.
