Description (partial)

  In a VSS using HSRP object (interface) tracking, the HSRP virtual mac-address
  is not flushed, when active VSS switch fails over to standby AND HSRP fails 
  over to a peer at the same time. As a result, connectivity to default gateway 
  may be lost.
  Issue is seen when ALL the following conditions matched.
  - VSS setup running 12.2(33)SXI2a or 12.2(33)SXI3.
  - This issue is seen ONLY in "IP Base" (crypto or non-crypto) image.
  - VSS is configured with HSRP object (interface) tracking. 
  - Issue is triggered only when active VSS fails over to standby and VSS becomes
    HSRP standby.
