HP 5308xl firmware problem?

Hello everybody!

I've experienced the following problem:
I've installed several 5308xl switches, all of these upgraded with the E.07.22 firmware release.
I've experienced several network timeout problems, specially when the traffic is directed to a Cisco 3600 router (our uplink to the Internet).
Downgrading to the E.06.03 version seems to solve the problem.

The problem is that we need E.07.22 release to use the MD5 authentication for OSPF.

Any suggestion/experiences?

Please go to HP support (CCC). This problem wil be fixed. A clear ARP is a work-around.
