Description (partial)

PPP EA may crash when reconnecting to AIB. This can happen for instance on LC OIR, or process restart. After the crash, everything recovers successfully.

This crash can only be hit when AIB returns an error to PPP EA when it tries to install an adjacency. So under normal conditions the crash is never seen (it has only ever been hit in R3.9.0).

This issue is only present in R3.8.x and R3.9.0. It is fixed in R3.9.1, and in R4.0 and all later releases.

After the crash, everything will recover successfully.
