We're clearly missing a trick here, but I'm not convinced of your
approach. What should happend is that the redistributors should be reset
as well, and that this should recall any LPI that has been made pending.
Unfortunately, we don't seem to have such code in place, which is

Can you give the following, untested patch a go? It isn't right either,
but it should have the right effect. If you confirm that it solves your
