Bingo!  Right on the money again.  We've had a lot of these lately.  The 
firewall product we use has the ability to drop unroutable ip's.  In the 
beginning I thought this was just 192.168/16, 172.16/12 and 10/8 but I 
soon found out it also includes a list of ip's that is marked as 
reserved by IANA.

http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space and was reassigned last year, but I think the ISP 
only recently started assigning them to clients.  We actually had 
similar problems from our side when our local ISP started assigning ip's 
from which was formerly reserved.

In any case, it is fixed now.
