I've recently come to notice that traceroutes through a linux router use
the wrong ip (ip of exitting interface) wich should actually be the ip
of the incomming interface.

I've found a trivial patch (attached) wich resolves this. Perhaps this
is something to include (or have a sysctl to toggle this behaviour). I
unfortunately have no knowledge of programming, so the sysctl option
would have te be done by a volunteer.

Regards,
