OK, Have you the name of the DHCP server do you use? 
Have you write a bug report against the pump package?

see: http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/pump.html

I think your problem is a problem "with client and server" I have seen 
this problem with a dhcp server in a DSL router and dhcpcd (pump 
works). Yes I have not write a bug report because I have no information
about the router.

Try it in a separate network with two Knoppix. On one KNOPPIX start the
Terminal-Server (included the dhcpd3 server). Works it?  

You can also see some information of the problem with tcpdump. 

I often work with the CD in different networks with no problems!
I expect that dhcpcd solve your problem, but with other dhcp server we 
maybe will have new problems.

:-( But you have solved the problem for you. :-)
Have you the problem also if you use the newest KNOPPIX CD without 
installing it on harddisk?
