A Packet Challenge: Help us identify this traffic

Paul wrote in with some "stray packets" he detected on his home firewall against UDP port 10119. The packet appear to come from "all over" and don't look spoofed (various TTLs and IP IDs). All packets have "normal" source ports, and the TTLs suggest that they are all Windows hosts. He is seeing about a dozen packets / minute. So not a DoS, but annoying enough to notice.

Paul uses a dynamic IP address, so the obvious assumption is that this is some for of P2P afterglow from a prior user of this IP address. The question is: What kind of P2P? Is anybody able to identify it? Below you will see a quick excerpt of the traffic (source IP, source port, TTL, IP ID and the payload)

This looks like a common torrent client UDP Packet from Vuze (Formerly Azureus), or possibly uTorrent if configured this way.

Like Angel said, it looks like I2P...this listens on UDP 10119.

Based on the whois of the source(residential) IP's, TTL (windows), and source ports. I am going to have to bet on P2P with modified port or anonymizer but, lean towards P2P.
