fwiw...I'm trying the same trace from nodes within CoreNAP and pnap spaces
and am seeing the same thing.

However, my Vonage at home has functioned without interruption, as far as
I am able to tell.  I suppose I may have covens of angry family members who 
have been trying unsuccessfully to call me with thrilling tales of gall stones 
and lazy boyfriends, but I have heard nothing to suggest that is the case. 

Then again, my personal delivery of Vonage seems to include the nifty 
"Surprise!  Half-duplex!" feature that leaves me suddenly able to hear the 
other party without the other party being able to hear me (this, 
coincidentally, throws a big wrench into mitigating the aforementioned family 
fun calls), and that has been on the rise this week.
