Description (partial)

can result in dup packets on segment when mcast topo changes in multi-vendor environment.

"debug ip pim" will show 
PIM(0): Received v2 Assert on Vlan1 from
PIM(0): Invalid host address


When another router sends PIM assert with source address and RPT bit set, PIM will reject it as an invalid source. Only happens when forwarding on shared tree as this is the only time per RFC 4601 when assert with source address is valid.
