Yep, that was me.

interfaces on the same physical network, but the question remains: "Why is
my Linux box sending ARP replies from both interfaces?" <<

Interesting thought. None of my Linux machines are dual-homed at the moment,
>> One other note: This didn't seem to start happening until I loaded SSH 2
on the Linux firewall. Was some code added during that install that has an
ARP bug in it? <<
Interesting again, but it seems unlikely (to me) that SSH is affecting ARP.
AFAIK, ARP is handled completely in the kernel, and I don't think SSH has
any interaction with that code.
Anyone else here have better knowledge in this area?
