I had to create a diagram which is (hopefully) attached to this mail as an svg.
I don't think I could describe it clearly in plaintext.
There are five routers with respective IDs written inside the boxes.
All are in ospf area 0.0.0.0.
There is rest of the network behind routers with IDs 18.104.22.168 and
22.214.171.124 which id didn't put into the diagram.
There are some additional complexities, such as a separate ospf instance from
routers with IDs 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 but that wasn't affected so I
didn't include that either.
ID: 184.108.40.206 is a primary router running bgp to the provider and
exporting default route as an E2 route with metric2 10000.
All ospf costs are set to 10 except for costs to router ID: 220.127.116.11,
which is 15.
ID: 18.104.22.168 is a backup router running bgp to the provider and exporting
default route as an E2 route with metric2 11000.
All ospf interface costs are set to 30.
ID: 22.214.171.124 is connected to ID: 126.96.36.199 and ID: 188.8.131.52
All ospf costs are set to 10.
ID: 184.108.40.206 is connected to ID: 220.127.116.11 and ID: 18.104.22.168 on
one interface and ID: 22.214.171.124 on second interface. There are additional routers
connected to a third interface.

ID: 126.96.36.199 is connected to ID: 188.8.131.52 and ID: 184.108.40.206 on
one interface and ID: 220.127.116.11 on a second interface. There are aditiona
routers on a third interface.

There is an asymmetry in interface costs with anything connected to router
ID: 22.214.171.124, because it has been often selected as a gateway between
those parts of the network that are separated by this router and the router
ID: 126.96.36.199. I prefer using router ID: 188.8.131.52, and this solved my
problem by making paths through ID: 184.108.40.206 more expensive.
The problem occured while reconfiguring router ID: 220.127.116.11, where I set
interface cost to router ID: 18.104.22.168(and of course ID: 22.214.171.124)
from 10 to 15.
After running configure on router ID: 126.96.36.199, bird daemons crashed on routers
leaving all the exported routes in the kernel routing table.
The bird daemon on router ID: 188.8.131.52 didn't crash.
After I've started bird again, everything went to normal.
