I just set up a DMZ interface, and the only thing I had to change from
the defaults to allow LAN hosts to ping DMZ hosts is to change the
protocol on the default rule for the interface from TCP to any.

Take out your static routes, as they're unnecessary.  One of them is
not set up right, and you've created a routing loop.  (hence the TTL

Might be easier to reset factory and start from scratch, depending on
what else you have configured - the only thing you need to change is
the protocol on the rule I mentioned above.
