UDP port 69 connections.

Has anyone else running on a network with a load of Suns encountered a
problem of being swamped with UDP requests on prot 69 (A Sun trying to boot,
but its boot server is down, it keeps trying, and trying, ...).  These have
the nasty feature of absorbing all available memory.
	This seems to affect systems with ECO tape#2 more than ECO tape#1
(not all our systems are updated) and has become apparent only in the
recovery from a power failure (every Sun is booting and some servers are
still down) a few days ago.
