Posting this again, as I haven't seen any replies.  Is this the right 
mailing list?

Just lately, my /var/log/messages has been filling up with messages like

Aug  6 14:26:35 jezebel kernel: ip_local_deliver: bad skb: \
                             PRE_ROUTING LOCAL_IN LOCAL_OUT POST_ROUTING
Aug  6 14:26:35 jezebel kernel: skb: pf=2 (unowned) dev=lo len=52
Aug  6 14:26:35 jezebel kernel: PROTO=6 \
                                       L=52 S=0x00 I=4590 F=0x4000 T=64

I've also seen PROTOs 17 and 1.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what is going on?
