The problem exists before the routing is in place so it can't be the
culprit. (I jut tossed the static route to the test remote host to
easily force telnet to use the right NI.)

That is with no static routes it still fails. It also wouldn't
explain why callouts to all hosts are timing out or failing.

Is their a timer for sender call out verification? If you review the
previous -d output you'll see it looks like it connects but then
times out (presumably not getting a banner response from the remote
server in time?)
