As for the LSA issue- rebooting would have fixed the problem, assuming it was done by all nodes at the same time. All of the Link State tables would have been rebuilt from scratch by the IMPs and the corrupt announcements would have been gone.
Turns out this is actually mentioned on page 14 of RFC 789.

As I recall the IMP software was actually patched to ignore the problematic announcements from IMP 51.
Not that it matters- but it was IMP 50 not 51.
