ICMP redirect message on console

Hi, just a (hopefully) quick question.
It has for a long time been a problem for me that if my ADSL modem
disconnects or similar network problem, the serial console gets flooded
with "ICMP redirect..." messages. Because I often can't connect over the
network when this happens it means that it very difficult to work on the
box to correct the problem.
I initially thought it was ipmon logging but killing it doesn't help. The
only thing that works is removing the default route but I would like to
know if there is a way to prevent to messages being sent to the console in
the first place.
