Yes, that's the problem.

Originally, I wanted to fix it with the patch below.

Given the fact that dst->obsolete is not null, this should
do the same like your patch for output routes. During the
tests with this patch I noticed a problem with that.
Unfortunately I can't remember what it was...

I'll do some investigating, perhaps I can get it back to my mind.

I did some quick tests with this and with your patch and both
seem to fix the problem at the first glance.
