DHCP Snooping causing increased ARPs

Pretty much every day we have instances of ARP storms on the network where a client will "arp who-has" for their own IP address causing massive braodcast traffic on the network.


It seems to be more than a rogue client and my suspiscions lie with DHCP snooping.


Does anyone know if DHCP snooping can cause this kind of problem? Either if incorrectly configured or by manifesting some weird windows bug?
