BGP convergence problem

I finally decided to shut down all peerings and brought them back one by one.
Everything is stable again, but I don't like the way I had to deal
with it since it will most likely happen again when DECIX or an other
IX we're at is having issues.
I've seen a few BGP convergence discussions on NANOG, but none about
deadlock situations and what could be done to avoid them. Setting
higher MTU or bigger hold queues did not help.
