I saw this on one bay box.  It started at 11:45 Aug 5 and ended 8:40 Aug 6.
Apparently, it's due to the way some cisco bgp router originated
notification msg's with confederation extensions. Bay does not support this,
and drops the session.  I was told it is cisco's implementation of rfc1965.
I saw problems from some cisco peers, but not all.  No problems from bay

Now there's a DoS.....
