	LVS-DR with ARP problem solved? IMO, from the information
provided nobody can hit the right answer. When searching the problem
you have to check all layers before LVS: addresses, ARP, routing, trying
some 'ip route get XXX',  'arp -an | grep VIP' and 'ping VIP' in all
flood clients. The HOWTO is full with problems that can happen. IMO,
you have two options: draw picture and show all your settings or
spend (the same?) time to check everything again.

	The short answer is "there is no known time-dependent problem
in LVS". BTW, what answer do you expect? Oh, my letter is longer
than yours :(
