The wacky multiple-addresses on one interface stuff is quite likely to
be the problem. Does the problem go away if you remove these? The code
for this is completely re-written in later versions, partly to better
support this sort of config, so upgrading to the latest release (2.33)
is the best first step.
I suspect that upgrading will fix things, but let me known how you get
on: if it's still broken, I'll debug the 2.33 code.
