That is mine.

Every router on there has had directed broadcasts disabled for a long time.
Only that network is a /25, so the broadcast address we are talking about
is 205.236.182.127.

It turns out that not only does 205.236.182.255 unexpectedly function as
an alternate broadcast address for this network, but it is unaffected by
no ip directed-broadcast!!!

This sounds like two bugs in one.

(and I performed a hack to fix this network, but I shouldn't have had to
do this)
