The issue is similar except the ARP requests and response are on the LAN side. The other strange thing is both the Sonicwall and Server that is being ARPd and the machine that is sending the request are on the same subnet which by all reasoning should never happen.
I'm not extremely familiar with SonicWall, but a couple thoughts:

-Do you have any Network Address Translation configured (NAT)?  If you have a NAT for that would cause the SonicWall to answer the ARP.  

-SonicWall has a bridging mode.  That means that it is able to "secure" traffic between the same subnet.  So if tries to talk to the firewall ( will get in the middle.  Look for any bridging options and shut it off.

-Make sure your netmask on the internal interface is correct.  I assume it should be

I though of ther bridging mode and disabled it but never completed implementing it because of the issues that arose.

There is a bug in the 2.5 Enchanced Firmware. I received the following information from Soniceall FINALLY
