I once had something similar but for me the issue was cause by not
having "auto eth1" in my /etc/network/interfaces file.
After adding that ifup command worked.
However since you already have this stance, it must be something else
(duh i'm a real Sherlock here :)). Are you sure your dhcp is working?
Since eth0 is active after adding a fixed ip, but not when an ip is
requested via dhcp, dhcp might be the issue?
Is the dhcpd daemon running? Is /etc/default/dhcp configured
Nothing strange in /etc/dhcpd.conf?
