From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)

If the dhcp server doesn't give pump a renewal on the lease then pump will
attempt to
obtain a new one (only once in the current code but see bug-19502 about
that), however even if it does get a lease it doesn't seem to set the
interface back up correctly.  pumpDhcpRun() calls pumpPrepareInterface()
which zaps the current address so we need to call pumpSetupInterface() and
since the address/routing may be different we should probably also call the
code to setup the default gateway, dns etc.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a dhcp server refuse to renew lease
2. wait for pump to try to renew
3. when it fails and does a fresh dhcpdiscover it seems to leave the
   interface with no IP address (though marked up).

Actual Results:  n/a

Expected Results:  working interface

here is a patch which I think does the right thing, but I'm waiting for a
dhcp server timeout to be sure. Note that this includes (since I'm lazy)
the one char typo mentioned in 19501 (+= should be =) since I think that
logic sounds correct.  Also this moves the callscript in the 'case
CMD_STARTIFACE' to only happen if we obtained a lease, since calling it if
we didn't get a lease seems weird.

Sorry for the long reply delay...

Does this bug still exist in the pump from rawhide?

Also, I hate to be picky, but please resend the patch in unified (diff -u)
format so I can read and merge it more easily.
