Bug#479473: debian-installer: DHCP client fails to assign address during install

reassign 479473 dhcp3-client-udeb 3.1.0-3

General comments:
* please make sure that your normal text has a decent line width even
  when you disable line wrapping because of the log
* when you replace values in a log, please make that explicit; currently
  one could think that the invalid xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx MAC address could
  be the source of your issue, but I'm going to assume you replaced it

I suspect that this is the root of your problem. Therefore reassigning to 
the dhcp3-client package.

Andrew: a more complete log is available in the BR.
