pumpd failing to renew lease


I'm running kernel 2.2.18pre21 on a Beige G3/333 (mistie). I have a problem with pumpd failing to renew it's lease. None of the other four boxes I'm running, on the same net have this problem. One of them is an i686 with kernel 2.2.14-5.0smp also running pumpd.

# cat /var/log/syslog | grep pumpd
May 13 15:24:03 mistie pumpd[13682]: failed to renew lease for device eth0 May 13 15:24:03 mistie pumpd[13682]: terminating as there are no more devices under management

This is reoccuring several times a day. pumpd tries to renew it's license every half an hour or so. About one time of four it fails with the above error.

The list archives have a thread on this <http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc-0104/msg00369.html> but no solution afaik. That thread suggests there might be a problem with MACE eth HW. But in my Beige G3 there's the BMAC i/f.

Anyone know if a solution was discussed or if it got narrowed down ?

looking at alternatives what is the difference between:

dhcp-client - DHCP Client
dhcpcd - DHCP client for automatically configuring IPv4 networking
