Stange problem which I encountered today, I have a Cisco 2960 which is connected to a netgear. The switch started showing itself in CDP and was running STP. I checked the cables physically today and noted 3 uplinks to the netgear, all port on the Cisco active and forwarding and green lights.
The Cisco was running STP, I changed it to R-PVST and the lights on the Cisco went crazy and I got the message port flapping on the switch but the switch did not block any ports (all ports on same vlan).
There after I changed it back to stp and the switch blocked the other up links apart from one.
It is difficult to comment on this issue without knowing the configuration of both your 2960 and Netgear. In my opinion, the loop first formed when the switch began seeing itself in CDP. Changing to R-PVST may have aggravated the situation but it does not seem to have caused it in the first place.
