It might be worth snooping some packets (both DHCP and DDNS) and have
a good look at the contents. I recall an interesting problem some
years ago with some print server boxes that padded the client ID out
to some fixed length with nulls - and the nulls acted as a string
terminator and "rather messed up" something (DDNS IIRC).
