LND Issue

Invoices for private nodes contain route hints. Route hints describe to the sender how to reach the destination starting from one or more publicly known intermediaries. If those route hints aren’t specified correctly, it is currently possible to trigger a never-ending retry loop at the sender. The loop is terminated when the specified timeout duration is reached.
