Ah, STSN. I've had to hack dhclient because some of their servers
(encountered often in Marriotts) emit options that are sufficiently
invalid to cause dhclient to discard the packets.
My favorite was the STSN-in-room box crashing when presented with an NS
RR query for the root. Took a while to figure out that it was crashing
(and rebooting - 15-20 sec outage) everytime the nameserver on the laptop
tried (unsuccessfully) to prime it's cache.
