thanks for the thip: i got 2 reason types:
Aug 17 15:30:27 dns kernel: ipt_unclean: TCP reserved bits not zero
Aug 17 15:57:06 dns kernel: ipt_unclean: TCP flags bad: 4
can you put some light on it? i guess that TCP flags bad: 4 mean an
illegal combination like: SYN/FIN, but which one: i could use a chart of
which bits mean which flags.
i've been reading tcp illustrated - it's my guide, but i haven't found any
information on reserved bits (maybe i didn't get to that part yet)

no, i have not seen them actually, i'll look for them :)
