Routes are not reliably mapped to container groups. Despite successfully submitting a route map request via "cf ic route map --hostname $hostname --domain mybluemix.net $containergroup" my routes are frequently NOT mapped. I have to re-issue the command several times. I also frequently get told that I have an invalid auth token and have to cf logout and cf login again to resolve it. The container group status should perhaps have another state after CREATE_COMPLETE that is updated *after* the group is created, at least one container is running, and the route is mapped and valid.
