An ospfIfRxBadPacket trap signifies that an OSPF packet has been
received on a non-virtual interface that cannot be parsed.

Put some examples of that traps here, each trap should contain following

IfIpAddress or AddressLessIf

You may use tcpdump to catch ospf packets on that routers' interfaces.
Better if you'll write tcpdump`s output to a libpcap compatible file and
than analyze it with ethereal or same util.
