arp table flushed!

Hi all,

I wonder if you know why when I do a L3 handoff (the IP address changes) the arp table is completely flushed. So, the kernel starts to arp all over again.
Do you know if there is a way to prevent the arp table from being cleaned? I tried to re-fill the entries manually (using the arp command) after I got the new IP, but the kernel ignores the whole thing and starts to arp again.
Any help is much appreciated.

Best regards,
