Bug#442374: debian-installer: network configuration with DHCP sometimes breaks

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor


I recently installed an Etch machine in a private network where there
are DHCP addresses handed out. They use a /16 network, and on most
occasions (I had several attempts at it), the installer reported that
the network configuration didn't succeed. But switching to another
console and saying "ifconfig" showed that networking actually was
configured correctly. Repeating the auto-configuration attempt mostly
yielded a failure, only on one attempt it said "succeeded".
