fuel pump assembly, what the hell is is this?

Found this in the bottom of the fuel pump assembly. Bike ran great before i started some winter work. Any ideas? looks like drill shavings.

Should have said, It ran 'Perfect' when I started. I have never seen anything like this in 25 years of playing with cycles... Looks like they forgot to clean the machine work out of the tank when they drilled the pump housing holes. Just my initial guess. Anyone have anything to add?

It actually should be there. If i remember right it's filter for the returning line. Don't at the moment remember whats it called.

So drill fillings are normal and should be there? If not for the amount in the bottom of the pump. Wow what a surprise i suppose. Looks like the crap laying underneath my drill press.

Yes. And actually they are not drill fillings. Some kind of steel woll. This is actually from ST:s fuel pump but the picture is good:

Yep, that's supposed to be in there. It's in my pump/filter assembly too.
