SRCDS Steam group

Randobly banning people for "rcon hacking attempts"

I have a srcds server running TF2 on Debian.

I have forwardet port 27015 (locally) to 27016 and set the local IP of the srcds instance to the local IP of the server through command-line (we use loopback in our network, so without it, everyone would connect as the gateway's IP, which results in everyone getting banned when one IP does. Yes, it's weird).

People can connect to the server with no problems, it runs fine and everything, but whenever someone tries to rcon from in-game, it just bans them:

L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:12: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><>" connected, address ""
Client "Silan" connected (
L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:12: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><>" STEAM USERID validated
L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:24: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><>" entered the game
L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:30: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><Unassigned>" joined team "Red"
L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:30: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><Red>" changed role to "soldier"
Banning for rcon hacking attempts
L 05/24/2012 - 17:58:41: "Silan<33><STEAM_0:*:*><Red>" disconnected (reason "Added to banned list")
Dropped Silan from server (Added to banned list)

(IP and steamID cencored)
The rcon attempt was made just before "Banning for rcon hacking attempts".

I should probably mention that it works sometimes. No idea what's going on.
I can also inform that the server's timestamps are off by an hour, but that shouldn't matter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Post your server.cfg

My server.cfg:

hostname "rcz"
rcon_password "censored"
sv_rcon_banpenalty "0"
sv_rcon_maxfailures "0"
sv_rcon_minfailures "0"
sv_rcon_minfailuretime "0"
sv_password "censored"
sv_maxrate "20000"
sv_region "3"

The sv_rcon_ commands are there in an attempt to fix the issue.

Edit: I should mention that the server is running with the etf2l_6v6.cfg, unedited.
