Perhaps another factor that comes in to play here is that I do not accept
advertisements for my own networks from external peers.  There is no need, I
already know the best routes to my own networks.  

Unless I am mistaken if one of my peers sends me my customers /23 route I
believe that will trigger a rib failure and the route will not be injected
in to my tables.

Whatever the mechanism I do receive the /23 advertisement.
