Can any one give me  a reason for a Class B IP  address appearing in my 
network routing tables ?

I did not create it, it is not part of my network nor have I been able 
to delete it with the route command.

Does having the automatic update notification or any of the update tools 
utilize such an item? I am very concerned about the existence of this 
suspicious address. I have it on both the two systems I have upgraded to 
8.04 LTS. A third system  that  is running  7.10 now appears to exhibit 
the problem as well.

Ideas and suggestions welcomed...
