As much as I dislike the notion of putting it to use, SilentRunner by
Raytheon has the capacity, I believe, to detect this. It looks for related
patterns of traffic, and groups those patterns together. ICMP or other such
packets that differ from the norm would stand out and be grouped as such,
making them easier to analyze.
