Management IP address not accepted by ESXi

OK, someone explain this to me: I have ESXi 3.5 U3 running on and Intel mobo server with a 100/1000 Pro NICs. I am configuring the IP address of the ESXi management interface on the server's Direct Console UI. The UI refuses to accept the IP address 192.168.3.* (with * being any value from 1 to 254). It will take 192.168.0.*, 192.168.1.*, 192.168.2.*, 192.168.4.*, ect., but it does not like 3 as the value in the last octet of the network on any of them. And the netmask is /24.

Anyone have an idea why ESXi would refuse a perfectly valid IP address for its management interface? I haven't yet tried upgrading to U4 to see if this "problem" is fixed by it.
