    Can you elaborate on why it appears there was a delay between the
    software update having taken place, and the problem becoming visible?
    From my measurements the problem became visible at 19:22 UTC on November
    20nd. The RPKI stack from an end-to-end perspective is an interesting
    waterfall of timers, the above question is for my own edification on how
    this all works.

If I got my timing right, looks like you must have received the updated repository as we were pushing out the software updates.

    A fix was deployed on November ***22nd***, right?

Good catch.
