If the Dumb AP's wireless interface is in ap-mode, then this shouldn't
be an issue. It's only client-mode interfaces that have trouble with bridging.

I'd suggest running tcpdump on the Dumb AP's wireless interface and the
client's wireless interface and see which of them sees the various parts
of the DHCP handshake.
