I have observed this phenomena using v7.1.3 under Solaris 2.8. The device in 
question is a Cisco 6509 switch and the subnets were VLANs that were removed. 
Demand poll seemed to have no effect on these "unreachable" subnets. I have 
been suspicious of it but had not come to any conclusion. I think there is 
something there, just can't put my finger on it.
