I've had a long-standing problem, as well, with HNs and VPSs randomly
losing connectivity for seconds at a time. It's been enough to set off
Nagios, to delay SMTP, etc.
My workaround (I won't call it a "solution") was to write a simple
"gratuitous ARP daemon" or "garpd" This works on the same principle as
you discovered: if I retransmit ARP, it solves the problem for a little
If you want the garpd code, assuming the folks here can't provide a real
fix, I'm glad to post it to the list and/or wiki.
