--- Comment #2 from Sten Herrlin <sten.herrlin at bredband.net>  ---
I'm using the Gentoo linux distribution (www.gentoo.org) which uses
init-scripts to manage devices. '/etc/init.d/net.xxx cmd' means I'm calling the
init-script for network device xxx (e.g. eth0) to execute "cmd" which can be
"start", "stop", "restart"...

The reason I encountered this problem seems to be that the DHCP client I used
to use: "dhcdbd" has been removed from the gentoo distribution which made the
init script fall-back to "udhcpc" implemented in busybox.

I have worked my way around the problem by installing "dhcpcd" (originally
proposed in the gentoo handbook) so this bug-report can be closed since I no
longer care if "udhcpc" works in my environment.

Thank you for your help.
