Actually, I would have said that corrupt/bad IAX packsets *should* be 
reported and are *not* harmless.  They're harmless in your instance 
because your monitoring application isn't functioning properly, but to 
anyone else they're likely to indicate either (a) a hacking attempt or 
(b) a fairly serious network problem.

How about you fix your monitoring application to send a correct IAX2 
POKE request?
