I assume that the box's OS is setting to the nearest power of two by
default and that it's being decremented by one per router en-route as
normal. In this case, (- 128 111) is 17 :)

OK. Either we have asymmetric routing or that packet is spoofed from
something that's really 17 hops away in order to get your network (hence
the broadcast) to attack a box that's really 19 hops away. Or the box is
emitting dodgy packets itself (less likely).
