Sorry... this was poorly worded.  We did not actually tear down the BGP
sessions.  I should have placed quotes around "BGP session".  What we
did was virtually nuked the "view" in the RS of the pairwise peering
thus forcing a BGP withdrawal to the effected peers of the RS and
hopefully leaving only valid third-party views intact.  Again, the
greatest problem was detection and modeling.
