Description (partial)

LSPs take paths not expected by the operator based on the ECMP tie-breaker.

The conditions to run into this issue are:
1- Multiple tunnels with signaled bandwidth configured
2- Tunnels use the random tie-breaker among equal-cost paths
3- Two or more equal cost paths but with different available bandwidth along the paths

When this issue happens, the paths chosen will not be randomly chosen between the equal-cost paths. 
Instead, the min-fill tiebreaker is used instead of random.
