I was once told that it means you have two networks sharing one physical
wire.  That is indeed the case here; seems there wasn't enough money
budgeted to wire the networks separately :(

I, too, get millions of these.  Is there anyway to turn them off?  They
completely fill my message log so that a few minutes after booting, I can
no longer use dmesg.  Also means ipmon is out of the question.  A real
headache to which I have found no solution.
