Is it normal or correct behaviour for an interface to listen to IPs that
it is not configured for?

(Yes, I do know it is normal for services, like httpd, to listen to

The packets shouldn't get to Apache in the first place.

You shouldn't have to setup a firewall as a workaround either. If your NIC
card is configured for a particular IP and you want to stop it, then
simply unplugging the ethernet cable should do it.

Josep, are you testing this locally from same machine or over the network?
