Policies for an installed SA always have a higher priority compared to
trap policies. The way we currently calculate priorities, this implies
the behavior you have seen. While this seems not to be what you have
intended, there may be other scenarios where using any appropriate SA
might be preferable over establishing that narrower, additional tunnel.

You may try to adopt the get_priority() [1] calculation and give ROUTED
priorities a slightly higher precedence that it currently has.
priority++ might might work, but there might be some side effects to
such a change.
