No, I believe you have correctly identified the problem. Some time quite
a while ago someone did in fact screw up and add a "unit 1" to lo0,
which was of course promptly removed again. This problem of course did
not manifest itself until now, since by coincidence the IP used on lo0.0
has been the lowest IP on the router until now. I guess I have to bite
the bullet and schedule a reboot which hopefully fixes this. 

Thanks for your input.
