Catalyst 4006 and Passive Tap issue

I've been trying to connect a Finisar Passive tap (I've used the old Shomiti century taps and now the new UTP IL/1 tap) to a Firewall and my Catalyst 4006. The tap is advertised as being fault tolerant, but when I use it in conjunction with the 4006 I am getting delays of about 25-30 sec before my connection comes back after power is pulled from the tap. I've tried different configurations on the port (forcing full duplex, port fast enable/disenable, etc...), but I can't seem to drop the delay any lower. I need it to be 10 sec or less. The tap and firewall work fine when connected to a 6509, but the 4006 is giving me trouble. Has anyone else had this problem?

Re: Catalyst 4006 and Passive Tap issue

Have you also made sure that trunking and channelling for that have been disabled? They are set to auto by default.

That is a great suggestion. I'm connecting to a VLAN, though, so my trunking is turned off, and channeling has been disabled.
