Duplicate Address Detection misfire?

Doesn't my original suggestion still stand... regardless of how this
particular problem is fixed?

That is: if the sending MAC address is _our_ MAC address, then the address
is not duplicate.  It seems a simple change (unless the function that
processes the packet would have difficulty determining the MAC address) and
it seems to be infallible logic.  In fact, if we receive a packet from our
own MAC address, shouldn't we drop and log it?
