what version is sarge indicating? your report sounds like the
experience that led up to this:
Changes since 3.0.5rc1
- A bug was repaired in fixes to the dhclient, which sought to run the
dhclient-script with the 'EXPIRE' state should it receive a NAK in
response to a REQUEST. The client now iterates the PREINIT state
after the EXPIRE state, so that interfaces that might be configured
'down' can be brought back 'up' and initialized.
outside of that, i have no idea, and the debian list sounds like a
good place to start.
