it's about the gateway himself (not a client-of-the-gateway).
A gateway router (has to/)should check his default route and change
his role to 'ordinary-client' => switch working state from -g to
-r/-p Mode. May think about NATed LAN-clients, too...

The "working-tunnel-check" is good tool against 'vandalism' or
mis-configuration in the hand of a gateway-client, but it's no
protection for the gateway against vandalism (i.e.) of his ISP...

(stucking just in the mentioned situation)
