"martian source" messages flooding /var/log/messages

Hi all,

I'm still getting about 1 printout per second about martian
packets on an ethernet interface. I tried disabling log_martians, but
it seems to have no effect. I have the interface configured without an
IP because it's used for bridging virtual machines.

Thanks in advance for your help,
