We're still seeing this problem, I believe it maybe at Sprintlink, so
I've included them in on this. 

Guys, at Sprint:

ping -p 00000000ffffffff

from our border router on gives us this:

64 bytes from icmp_seq=5 ttl=248 time=505.031 ms
wrong data byte #24 should be 0x0 but was 0xff
        fc 91 d 31 37 c0 8 0 0 0 0 0 ff ff ff ff 0 0 0 0 ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff 
        0 0 0 0 ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff 

Can you look into it for us? I suspect it is still hitting lots of 
people that use Sprint as a transit...
