Can you configure portfast on the switch?  I'm guessing that the switch does
not enable forwarding until spanning-tree negotiation has completed.  See:

for more details.

If this worked previously, but fails now, then I also guess that we drop the
link now and did not in the past.  (Each time the link comes up, the cisco will
renegotiate and not enable forwarding for 30s.)
