I downgraded to iproute 2.6.19 and everything works correctly now. I'm using kernel, as indicated in the January 18th edition of the book. I would therefore say there is some kind of kernel version dependency in iproute2.

They have always followed the kernel version numbers, but as far as I know 
there's no dependency on specific kernel versions for the iproute2 package.
