need help with dynamic DNS updates, better mysteries

I took the following steps, in this order:
1. dhcpd.conf gets ignore client-updates;  No change.
2. client upgrade to dhcp3.  No change.
3. client config file gets 
   send host-name "corn";
   This causes the client name to appear in the dialogues
   with the server and
Mar 11 11:47:37 wheat named[7080]: client view inside: update '' denied
Mar 11 11:47:37 wheat dhcpd: Unable to add forward map from to timed out
in the logs.

By the way, I did enable the DNS logging as suggested in the
dhcpd.conf man page.  I can't find any way to increase DHCP logging
beyond running dhcpd3 -d -f

Debian bug is
somewhat related, but seems to concern getting the client to update
DNS directly.
