Troubles with HE's Tunnelbroker

Should be fixed now.  The tunnelbroker service uses a bunch of retired
7206 routers.  One of the routers ate its config.  Because of the number
of tunnels it uses compressed configurations, which can get corrupted if a
router runs out of memory (from leaks and memory fragmentation).

Tunnel broker issues should be directed to support at he.net.  Though it is a
free service with "beta" level support, we are a 24 x 7 operation so last
night an engineer was busy recovering the specific router from a back up.
