I can't think of any reason off the top of my head as to why you would 
see this behaviour.  My only suggestion would be to try removing 
everything non-essential such as the AP and switch and try running it 
for a while with just a single PC connected to it and see if the problem 
remains.  It sounds like you might be overloading the MAC table on your 
switch, but with a setup that small, that seems unlikely.
