Everything looks fine, except for the fact that the ping (echo request)
doesn't get to test1's sis4.

Are you sure the problem isn't with the switch? Have you tried resetting
it? Or replacing it with another one (where you could check the MAC
address table, etc.)?

You'd get this behavior if the switch had learned carp4's virtual MAC
address (00:00:5e:00:01:68) on another port. You're not using vhid 104
(:68 in the virtual MAC) on other ports of that switch, are you?
