Thank you very much for confirmation. I will open new bugreport.

This bug has several consequences:
  1, prevent overflooding user logs
  2, display more userfull information about who is generating bad LSA packets
 3, and of course fixing a real cause of LSA checksum miscalculation.

Even when you fix your problem, other computers around me would not upgrade quagga, so I could see this error
for many years.

best regards
