I've found the reason for this problem: The lease-times t1 and t2 used in
src/NetworkManagerDHCP.c are int's, but the lease-time we were using
(24 hours) is too large to be stored in an int.

Thus, we currently working round the problem by setting the lease-time to
only 8 hours (28800 seconds), which fits in an int.

If this problem is not already solved in the latest releases, it should at least
be properly documented as a limitation.
