Randy, I actually have an ongoing discussion with the Fort developers 
about this after a BGPSec bug left me with stale VRP's for several days, 
with no clear indication that Fort had "kind of" crashed and "not fully" 
crashed (fair point, I need to work on better internal monitoring of 
Fort, as well).

Will feedback once I have better info.

For now, if you haven't yet done so, recommend upgrading to 1.5.2 to 
avoid this specific issue.

The good news is this issue made the case for running different 
validation RP code, so your NLRI does not share fate, given it's the 
basis of the Internet.
