comment How does network sniffing software work over a switch?
I will try to learn models of switches and report back. Could the culprit be a cheap switch located at the top of the network topology? I guess it becomes even more complicated in that case. What would the policy of a switch be if a packet which does not belong to any of its ports arrives from the cheap switch located above itself on the topology?

My experience suggests a situation more like the case in David's answer. Sniffing computer appears to be receiving not some but all packets but all other computers are transmitting.
