[VLAN] broadcasts go where?

I assume you have done some policy routing stuff to make the routing
work? That should be a clue that what you have done is a bit of a hack.
This is not really a vlan related problem, the problem you have would
occur even if they were separate physical network adapters.

You need to either:
1. bridge all the vlans together (and use netfilter to stop packets
being forwarded between segments if that's what you are trying to
achieve)
2. break them all up into separate networks (different ip address
ranges)

I think #2 is the more correct solution, but you haven't described
enough about what you are doing and why to be sure.
