It made the radar with the consumer impact.  We traced the issue quickly
to customer datacenter routers/512K and worked with them to correct.  We
were surprised (or not really) with this being called a wide spread
provider issue.  Just checking if others really had an issue or was this
isolated to a few data centers.

No pixie dust ;-)
