Ok, so I tried messing with ebtables to see if I could make the spurious
ARP responses go away.
I ran a brctl command that killed networking on the server :(
That'll teach me to try new stuff on a production server :o
At this point the spurious ARP responses went away!
We got the server rebooted (it's in a colo).
When the server came back up, it brought up an interface with the "IP
address of evil". But this time,
ifconfig eth0:2 down
worked properly, and the server no longer responds to ARP requests for
Which means it's a kernel bug I guess :(
Thanks to Colm, Paul, Owen and Tomek for all the help and suggestions!
