That seems to be a bug in the 700 firmware. It will digipeat it's own
packet if it copies it back from a digipeater and the packet still has
an unused path component that the 700 responds to. This was discovered
during the AT Golden Packet event a few years ago.
Interestingly, based on this year's AT GP event, I don't believe the
D710 has this issue.
