    No, you're not confused. Someone did mention that dhcpcd was
    playing up.

    Obviously, something changed between 2.2.14 and more current
    kernels which broke pump. I don't believe it's a driver change
    because it also affects the 3c90x driver. I don't have a theory
    as to why this affects the 3com NICs though. But I'm assuming
    that whatever broke pump also broke dhcpcd.

    I note that with 3c59x in 2.4.0, pump-0.7.3 basically freezes up.
    It spits out a single bootp packet then goes to lunch. I got
    bored waiting after ten minutes. So an upgrade is definitely needed.
