I guess I am also assuming you are taking advantage of the bluetack 
lists (2) and an ipblock/iplist (1) mechanism suitable to your 
environment. i.e. ipblock is suitable for a distro install, but likely 
pfsense / ipcop / whatever have their own modules / addins / list 
mechanisms.

Won't help you figure out the nature of the craziness, but may help 
knock down the amount some. (Smaller haystack?)
