 Hm, generally.... Addresses are difficult to fake and I think that fake
addresses should be stopped at the routers... I think you should contact
your sysadmin or ISP and tell everythign about this.

 Do you have ident patch installed? I think it might help... Anyway... I
think that router should stop this bizzare IP's and bounce them away or at
least track them down.
