after many times of repeating itself I get a message which says "last message 
repeated x times"..
does anybody have any idea about it?
ps: 10.101.10.47 is another pc on the local lan...

It appears that some host is misconfigured and is attempting to use an ocupied ip:

a) you have a static arp table with a different mac/ip.
b) your own interface is configured for that ip and someone else is trying to use it.

To investigate further: try using arping to find host with that mac and hosts with that ip.

Cheers, Erik
