Server Down - How should Client Act?

I have my default lease set up for 3 mins for experimentation. I am giving
out a static IP based on MAC address.
My server does down. Using ethereal to watch the network traffic, I see
that at about 1/2 the time of the lease, the client sends out a DHCPREQUEST
message then 5 seconds later sends out another DHCPREQUEST. Nothing else
After the lease time expires, the server starts up again. No communication
occurs between client & server. The client has to be rebooted in order for
it to communicate & get an IP from the server.
