Now I'm a bit puzzled if

Thanks in advance,

The way to prevent this is for aliases to be netmask w/o a gateway.

Thanks a lot, it works -- and (as always) I don't know why I didn't think of this before.

Out of curiosity -- what is the reason that one of the IPs (.213, the last in /etc/network/interfaces) was chosen that often when I had all aliases (mis)configured with the same netmask/gateway?
