Ok, rc.d/routes is probably it (on the "healthy" machine I previously 
used as a reference). I will have to study the ip command and routing a 
bit, then make a fix on the "non-healthy" (xen) box.

[root at mail ~]# find /etc -type f -exec grep -l "ip rule" {} \;

[root at mail rc.d]# cat routes

/sbin/ip address add dev eth0
/sbin/ip route add default via tab 1
/sbin/ip route add default via tab 2
/sbin/ip rule add from tab 2 prio 500
/sbin/ip rule add from tab 1 prio 600
/sbin/ip route flush cache
