ICMP responses to broadcasts

Let me second John Romkey's assertion that no good ICMP implementation
should send redirects in response to a broadcast packet. Might I also
ask at this time why our core gateway does just that? We receive
several redirects a second in response to the rwho/ruptime packets
our Unix hosts send (no ruptime flames, please.)
