It would seem disabling the subnet anycast is fairly widespread, then.
I have verified the use of /127 on several hardware forwarding platforms
from Cisco and Juniper. /127 works just fine, and prevents the ping-pong.
[One concrete example where /127 works: Juniper T1600 talking to Cisco
CRS-1 on an OC-768/STM-256 link.]
