Route convergence when using a Redistribution Profile

Route convergence when using a Redistribution Profile

This is my scenario.  I have an eBGP relationship from my PA to Vendor A and Vendor B.  I have users that traverse this firewall and use their respective applications.  I have Vendor C which is a site-to-site vpn.  I'm doing a routed vpn with this vendor and I have static routes for Vendor C going across the tunnel interface.  The issue I am having is the route was configured in the static route and added to the redistribution profile for Vendor C.  When I committed the change users that were working with applications from  Vendor A and B dropped.  The drop was about 30 seconds and then came back.  The PA never lost the bgp peer with either vendor but the applications dropped.  


I ran a test by sending a ping to the destination IP in Vendor A's network and about 30 seconds to a minute after the commit change I dropped my ping.  What I noticed was that the route went away even though I could see it in the firewall route table.  


Has anyone out in the community seen or experienced this?  When adding a route to the redistribution profile is there a route re-convergence that happens?
