How IPX RIP crashed a WAN

Does any body know any reported bug of Novell that can make servers to advertise multiple invalid networks?

We had a problem in the WAN caused by Novell servers advertisig more than 14000 routes in their RIP updates. Those were invalid IPX networks in our AS. There were a 7200 and a 3660 directly connected to the server farms, both are redistributing RIP IPX in EIGRP IPX, when the servers started inventing routes both routers crashed. It also caused a lot of routes in SIA in the whole WAN.

Does any body have a tip to investigate this Novell's bug?
