Two questions out of sheer curiosity:

- what does the m0n0 route table look like?

- have you tried to reboot the m0n0 box after switching from interface 1 
to interface 2 with the XP box?

The reason I ask the second question is because many times (with Cisco 
and other branded routers, and some switches for that matter), if I move 
a device from one physical interface to another, the ARP cache requires 
a flush in order to realize that the device has moved.

May also be worth flushing the Windows ARP cache entry as well, but I 
don't think that this will be the problem in this case, as XP will see 
the two m0n0 IP's as separate ARP entries anyhow.
