I have also had the same problem with the link going down.  In my case it would take around 3 days before the link would die. After bringing down the interface and then back up. The link would only stay up for another 5 to 24 hours.  My final solution was switching to a FA310TX.  It has been up 6 months without problems on a fairly high traffic subnet (with snort).
