Looks like you already solved this, but wanted to suggest something:
If you really want to know about such things, and doubt the machine you
are working on, snort is a very good tool for detecting what is happening.
You'd have to install it on another machine. Hmm...maybe a port to
Android with wifi bridging... :)

Also, I'd go to /etc/, and use recursive egrep on that dotted-decimal
IP address, e.g.,
egrep -R ''
(technically you'd want to escape the '.', but in practicality you won't
see false positives on such unique numbers as IP addresses).
