Comment:

 I've made this an enhancement ticket, as bga is absolutely right about
 this - there is no actual bug. I'm not sure how this could be solved in a
 nice way, but if you can figure something out, maybe we can implement it
 :-)

 One way to solve your specific problem would be not to allow the second
 DHCP run overwrite the settings of the first unless its lease expired. As
 bga said, the order of the DNS lookups matter, so while chaining would be
 a possibility, it's not a perfect one, either -- still probably better
 than what we do now.
