I guess I don't really understand what you are trying to do. There really should be no situation that requires bridging two local ethernet interfaces connected to the same switch, that could not also be accomplished by properly configuring a single interface.....

I don't know how to make your ARP entries stick, but you could connect your WAN source and your LAN to a switch, and connect just one port of the MT router to that switch... Then the MT router can reach all destinations through one interface, eliminating the confustion, and the switch can handle the...
