Ethan Benson reported this as well.  This is very bad, the bugs have
been filed for a while.

Apparently there is a fixed version of this package in experimental.
We need fixes for this (and #103813) propogated into woody for the
base freeze, and it should be done as soon as possible.

Eloy, can you give us a status update here ?

If these can't get fixed, we may need to eliminate dhcp-client and
move back to pump, which I wouldn't be all that happy about.
