MacOS X tries pretty hard to make sure that it doesn't claim an IP
which is in use. Maybe the PIX is getting confused by the ARP check
and responding when it shouldn't?
Run "tcpdump -en" on the Mac, then try to set the IP address again.
That should tell you what's going on, although if you need help in
the fine art of understanding tcpdump's output, put that information
somewhere and we can take a look...
