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.
