Has anyone seen this message from a PIX before

IPSEC(ipsec_cipher_handler): ERR: bad pkt>

This occurs when a device tries to ping device All other traffic seems to be working fine across the VPN, just ICMP won't work and is generating these errors.

2*PIX 515R's running version 6.11 are used for the VPN. Windows 2000 servers are being used to for ICMP.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
