Yeah, the arp cache is the problem, thanks for nailing that one for me.
However, the ipfw rule you supplied doesn't seem to want to work for
me... I think for the time being I'll just run a cron job every 15
minutes or so that clears the arp cache completely. Thanks again for
your help!! I really appreciate it!

I think you need to allow arp through this device, something
ipfw add 30 allow layer2 mac-type arp
[not sure which rule to insert it at].
I'm guessing your arp cache is timing out.
