Yeah I've been noticing this problem myself too...I'm between 150k and 151k 
at my various peers.  Most of the gear at my edges should be fine well past 
the 250,000 mark or so, but I know of people who are having problems right 
now, even if they don't know it.

What, really, could be done to curtail these offenders?
