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

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?
