UUNET was injecting bogus routes into the routing tables (check through
a show ip bgp listing for 128.1, 128.2...).  The routes were being picked
up and redistributed by other ISPs as well.  They say they've withdrawn
all the routes now, and it will just take some time for the entries to
age out of the tables.
