Well the code that prints out that error message is getting
the IP address directly from the recvfrom() call in util.c
that gets the incoming udp packet. Do you have a network
sniffer that can see if the source address really is getting
set to the local broadcast address (and also this would allow
you to get the MAC address of the sender to track it down) ?

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
