Thanks, but that did not solve the problem.

Nice idea, but they have told me that they don't do "server support".  As I
mentioned, I do have a second box with a static IP that works fine with just
the configuration I'm trying here.  Although the hardware is different.

No, Wheezy is the host, although I do have an XP VM client.

Given that restarting networking after booting fixes this, I can probably
just do that in /etc/rc.local.  But that's awfully hacky.
