The network was a small one, using good midrange vendor 'C' switches.  All VLANs on all switches got flooded; the congestion was so bad that only one out of every ten pings would get a reply, from any station to any other station, except on the switches more than one switch away from the jabbering workstation.

Just two weeks ago I had a similar issue with a broadband modem 
repeatedly restarting itself - it flooded our network and all our VPNs 
with "jabbering" (TM) and basically left us in an unworkable situation 
until we got someone on site.
