Great this was exactly my problem, and I switched to dhcpcd and everything
works great.  However I also gsetup the default configuration of dhcpcd to
grab no port and had the configuration happen the 'debian way'.  I just
put int the following into my /etc/network/interfaces:

	iface eth1 inet dhcp
		hostname <@home-host>

did an ifup eth1 and w/ dhcpcd it workd great.

Till Later,
