Importing kernel routes

I want to import the following route into the bird:

db0fhn:~# ip route show table 230 via dev tunl0 onlink

The syslog shows:
Oct 19 19:21:49 db0fhn bird: Kernel told us to use non-neighbor

I'm pretty sure to add this route to the bird for redistribution via BGP4.

My config:
protocol kernel {
        learn;                  # Learn all alien routes from the kernel
        persist;                # Don't remove routes on bird shutdown
        scan time 20;           # Scan kernel routing table every 20 seconds
        export all;             # Default is export none
        kernel table 230;       # Kernel table to synchronize with (default:

My version: 1.1.4 (Debian/Lenny)

How can I solve this problem?

Thank you,
