[c-nsp] 6500 HSRP unicast flooding

Did you issue "clear arp" after changing the mac aging on both switches so
that they update their mac tables?

Other than that, are there any eg trunk ports flapping without portfast
configured that could cause a lot of TCNs ?

When you see the traffic from the span, does the destination mac appear on
the the "show mac address-table" ?
