But that doesn't answer the question of why it is still appearing many
hours after it has stopped being advertised; we have seen this happen too.
Even though it doesn't hurt anything as is because it isn't being used,
but what happens if the policy changes so it was being used?  Would it
magically process a withdrawal that presumably happened some time ago, or
would it actually use the bogus route?
