Unless you can tell me how to reproduce the problem on any system, there's not
much I can do to solve it.

It's also very unlikely that the DHCP server (component 'dhcp') has anything to
do with this.

Are now running Beta2 with the same behaviour. I do not either belive it's 
DHCPD that is causing the problem (there were just not the option "Other").

On my Beta2 system I've also tried to restart the network connection 
with "/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart". It will shut down the network but 
while initiating eth0 (configured with DHCP) it just stops. So it looks like it 
is loosing connection and then are unable to update/recive new ip adress from 
the DHCP server.

I've checked that the NIC module is still loaded and it is.

Hope this information helps extra.

I've checked and confirmed that the process dhcpd is terminatet during the 
events described before. So I fell that dhcpd is somewhat involved. And it is 
not possible to restart the dhcpd without reboot.
