CAPWAP traffic issue? or is the device actually going linkup-linkdown?

This sounds to me like there may be an intervening NAT device, typically a firewall, that has too short of an inactivity timer on it's pseudo-session timer for UDP traffic. The AP connects, the FW ages out the NAT-mapping, the next CAPWAP frame from the AP fails to get delivered while a new session gets established in the FW, and wash, rinse, and repeat.
