I've got a rather strange problem and hopefully someone can give me a clue where to start digging. 

I have an AIX 5.1 system that has the NetView agent installed and working just fine.  The problem is that I am constantly (6-7 per minute) getting traps (RPT below) from this server.  I have run TCPDUMP (external and loopback) and verified that queries with the wrong community string are NOT coming in - hence it something internal to the box.  I have disabled the NetView agent and the problem continues.  I have disabled SNMP and of course it stops.  Hence it's something IN the box. 

Any idea how I can start digging into this problem?
