Ha ha!  I don't know if you're back from shopping yet...and I'm not sure 
that I've broken it (cobalt branch)...but it has broken my router!

Beyond 'spontaneously reboots' as part of sqm-scripts instantiating the 
shaper I can't offer any more info.  Archer C7 v2.  Reverting to master 
is ok.  It's not even as if I use 'triple-isolate' *but* I know that 
section of code is used by 'dual-src/dsthost' anyway.

Sorry can't offer more info...away from home a lot and no serial console
