Yes, and there are other work-arounds possible too.  I posted here because 
I was concerned there may be a bug that needs fixing.

I did not explicitly ask for avahi-autoipd; it came as a consequence of 
installing xubuntu-desktop.

BTW, I mis-identified some things in my original post.  The cloud was not 
a recent DevStack install of the latest code; it was a non-DevStack 
install of Havana done a few months ago.

I tested again with a cloud that *is* a recent DevStack install of the 
latest code, and used that to make an instance of 
--- and in this case the extra route added by avahi-autoipd does *not* 
break routing to !
