Maybe bug, with -sP und ASA sending RST for denied networks

  maybe old stuff, just happened to me and can't find something in the docs
or elsewhere. When dong the -sP with an ASA in between you and the target,
the tcp-syn on port 80 will be answered by a RST from the ASA, thereby making
nmap think the host is responding and alive. Of course the results of such
a scan are basically useless then.

  Would it be possible to ignore RST in such a szenario? Or have a command
line switch to trigger this?
