I already saw Windows clients where it worked, so it has to be possible :-)

I also made the experience that on most Windows clients it doesn't work. But at least these clients I checked had always somewhere local entries for the searchlist and therefore ignoring the data from DHCP.
Are you sure there is no local config for search suffixe on your windows clients?
