 Am I seeing IPv5, or am I hallucinating?

Yes, you're hallucinating.  The IP version number is 4 bits of the first
byte in the IP header.  The upper 4 bits are the length of the IP header
measured in double-words.  Since the IP header is frequently 20 bytes
long, that 4-bit length field is often '5'.  You're no doubt reading the
wrong field.
