As mentioned in the previous reply, we have done some testing and a app note is in the process of being finished. Once the app note is published I will inform you where to download it.
Reading through the report from Princeton I come to understand this is an issue with the iPad under very specific circumstances and not with the infrastructure. I am afraid there are no actions or changes you could take on the infrastructure side to prevent this from occurring (short of disallowing any push type of protocol forcing the iPad to disconnect from the wireless network not running into the sticky DHCP issue in the first place).
Apple will have to address this issue by fixing the iPad’s behavior, or better said to be RFC complaint releasing (or renewing) the DHCP address even with push type of applications enabled.
The iPad does support EAP-TLS, however the process of configuring EAP-TLS on the iPad is a little more involved. Attached is a step by step instructions guide for EAP-TLS, please review and verify this yourself before publishing to your user community.

Edit, think I was thinking iPhone not iPad.
It could be an issue with multiple SSIDs from multiple radios on different APs, I seem to remember reports of the x-box not liking that at all. Many folks here at Aruba are using their iPads in our dense dual radio environment and from what I can tell it seems to be working fine.

i.e local-userdb add username xx:xx password xx:xx role Guest
then make sure the AAA profile for the guest ssid ( under Configuration-security-authentication-AAA profile-AAA-(guest)) has the MAC authentication profile set.
this includes Delimiter and case. ( we have it set to colon for Delimiter and caps for case. and also the MAC authentication group has the internal database included in the servers group.
the nice thing is that since it is set ont he master the locals will go to the masters internal database for the mac authentication. works very well.:)
