That is mine.

Every router on there has had directed broadcasts disabled for a long time.
Only that network is a /25, so the broadcast address we are talking about

It turns out that not only does unexpectedly function as
an alternate broadcast address for this network, but it is unaffected by
no ip directed-broadcast!!!

This sounds like two bugs in one.

(and I performed a hack to fix this network, but I shouldn't have had to
do this)
