Foundstone 7.5 causing Broadcast storm

We are doing an eval of 7.5 and running into some issues.

FS is installed on a VM, and we started some basic scans - the mcafee wireless and discovery scans.  We immediately noticed our core routers spike and a broadcast storm continued for hours.

The post from our network analyst is available here.

What's odd is how the broadcast continued, even after the scan was over. The discovery scan only ran for a little over a minute.

Anyone run into anything similar ? I have a case open with support.
