There is a serious bug in ExaBGP including the latest version (4.2.20, while
the port is still on 4.2.11).

Depending on network conditions and the number of configured neighbors, ExaBGP
may stay in a loop in which it will never connect to them. This bug can be
triggered after a power blackout, for example, when it can take some time for
connectivity to be restored.

The bug is fixed on Github:
https://github.com/Exa-Networks/exabgp/issues/1035

but it hasn't made it to a numbered release. It will for 4.2.21 I imagine.

Meanwhile, as the fix only requires adding two obvious code lines to a file I
think it would be wise to add the patch to the port until 4.2.21 is released.
