Does that mean you are overlaying two IP ranges on the same physical network
(the Cisco has 'ip address' and 'ip address

Or are the wireless access points also routers, and the Cisco has static
routes to your clients, with the access points as the next hop?

In the first case, your Cisco ARP cache will contain the IP addresses of
each of the clients. In the second, your Cisco ARP cache will contain only
the IP addresses of the wireless access points.

That's possible (I include that under category "router software bug"). I've
seen strange problems with CEF and the like several years ago, but I thought
it worked more or less these days.
