Nothing. Route filtering does not work on PC92 sentences. This is a
design decision that I made with the new protocol. However, it is not
cast in stone. You can always just switch it off completely on a link by
going "set/isolate <call>".
At some point soon I shall be starting a debate about this (it will have
to wait a couple of weeks because I am up to ears in ambulances) -
because the time is coming when some decisions about routing and the
related subjects of talking + "knowing when one of your buddies on the
other side of the world logs on" need to be aired and talked about.
