It could actually be a change with the DHCP server on the network, it could be 
giving out leases that are already expired or something.  Still, it's 
definitely a DHCP problem.

Yeah, avahi does a few things everytime a network connection comes up and goes 
down, DBUS might as well.  It looks like your network connection on eth0 is 
bouncing quite a bit.

You might try restarting the network on the machine.
