Bridging with firestarter and dhcp3-server.

I'm attempting to bridge wlan0 with eth0.  I've done this successfully
in the past with firestarter and dhcp3-server.  However I'm running into
some issues trying to set this up now.

What I have done in the past is set eth0 static, and enabled internet
connection sharing in firestarter.  Which ends up with the following
configuration files.

cat /etc/network/interfaces

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0

iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0

$ cat /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
# DHCP configuration generated by Firestarter
ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

subnet netmask {
        option routers;
        option subnet-mask;
        option domain-name-servers;
        option ip-forwarding off;
        range dynamic-bootp;
        default-lease-time 21600;
        max-lease-time 43200;

After a restart of networking, firestarter, and dhcp3-server all was
well.  This has worked on 3 separate instances.

However, now after restarting all services and attempting to request an
address on eth0 from another machine it fails with "No working leases in persistent database - sleeping." I can see the interface eth0 here on the laptop and while requesting the address the lights are not flashing like they usually would which leads me to believe the bridge/dhcp server isn't working.

I'm a bit lost where to start, I've looked through the logs for any failurs, errors etc.

# grep error /var/log/messages

I have no idea about segfaults. I've never encountered one that I was aware of. I have since restarted everything again after finding these in the logs to see if it would be reproduced, but they were not.
