I can use some help in tying this all together...

Yesterday I reported the FTP anomaly - today I've dug myself into a

I have traced the strange IP back into the domain.txt
file of my neighbor.  It belongs to the domain "rtimer.ampr.org".  There
are four entries for this domain that seems senseless?  

The one link that might work is that the "ip rtimer value" on my
neighbor system is badly set (in my opinion) much too short a time


I have searched for what rtimer does, and when it times out it makes no
sense to involve ampr.org or IP which is part of Verison
set of addresses.

SO - Is the domain table being garaged up by a jnos bug that is tied to
repeated time-outs of rtimer?

I hope someone can shed some light on this unusual situation.
If you can not - then I hope that you can chuckle about it...
