I think that I had experienced the same problem. I had other problems
with my configuration so I modified the script I had already built,
but recently came across something that made me think that it wasn't
dhcp per se that was failing, it was that ifconfig and init.d/network
hadn't run prior to the dhcp run, or something wasn't initialized
before dhcp ran. A hand start of dhcp worked after boot, later I
modified to call dhcp from another script ( I think this was
effectively why the fix I had performed earlier was working, though
not sure now. )
If that is some help? :) maybe it was a delay time to load a module or
initialize the card? I know that I had problems similar to this on a
laptop with potato or woody installed.
