I'm not too familiar with wpasupplicant, so I'm going to reassign the
wpasupplicant folks: it looks like under some circumstances
wpasupplicant exits too soon, so the first attempt to obtain DHCP
lease fails. I've asked Michael to add a delay to
/etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh and it fixed his problem. Please have
a look at it and advise.
