Right, we have those "martian source" loggings on the external interface at
our inner FW, too ;)

But it also can come from the inner network, when you configure a machine
on the same hub/switch with different Network-Adresses (eg: you have
192.168.0.0/24, but your normal network have 10.0.0.0/24)

These times i cant see any security related problems at all - but any
comments are welcome...
