	I've fooled around with this for a while today, and I see
generically what you're describing: after a local IP address is removed,
the corresponding entries in the bonding receive balance hash table are
not removed.  However, I'm not able induce the ill effects you describe
from this (following the script you supplied); I don't see the
(apparently) unsolicited ARP replies you show in your tcpdump traces.

	I do see some other weirdness when the receive balance hash
table becomes heavily populated, but nothing that is an ARP reply for an
address not assigned to the system.

	Is your test occuring on an isolated network, and is there other
concurrent network traffic that might be affecting things?
