I wonder...if the client isn't setting the broadcast bit but
needs it set.
You might try setting always-broadcast server option (I can't
remember the exact syntax right now), and have another look with:
tcpdump -vvv -len -s 1500 udp port 67
It could be that the server isn't sending some option(s) that the
boot rom considers mandatory.
