That's not strange at all. The default gateway for your other subnet
was obviously set, so you could get in. You had not set a default
gateway for that one, so you could not get out. It just means that
packets addressed to a subnet which doesn't match it's own, it doesn't
know what to do with it. This won't affect packets coming in.
