Then is this something that m0n0wall should address?

IE, the internal IP 192.168.12.34 is spewing crap and fills up over 99% of
the state table on its own.  Maybe the firewall should drop that IP and
somehow inform the admin?

I'm with Chris on this.  The symptoms are exactly what I've seen too many 
times when something behind a small router starts spewing.

The easiest thing to do is see if the problem remains with all of the 
Windows machine on the LAN switched off.  Setting firewall rules on 
outbound (LAN interface) to block everything except for what you know you 
need will help.  Logging those blocks will pin down the problem quickly.
