Oh, also if you run isc dhclient instead of dhcpc you can pretty much 
hack the dhclient.script to do whatever you want, including killing and 
restarting ciped-cb, maybe something along the lines of:
...
        ifconfig ....
# Background kill & restart of ciped-cb
        (sleep 10 && killall ciped-cb && sleep 10 && ciped-cb -c .. )&
...

Or whatever.

My dhclient.script also logs every lease, and I used it to maintain my 
up/down ratio on the connection.  My cable modem was down around 10% of 
the time in 2001.  In january it was *UP* around 20% of the time :(.
