Try tweaking the IRQs specified in /etc/defaults/pccard.conf.  If 
you're getting device timeout messages, this should solve the problem.

If you aren't seeing timeouts, I'm afraid you'll be stuck with 
dusting off tcpdump with a ``tcpdump -i whatever \( port 68 or port 67 \)
(I'm not 100% sure of the ``or'' syntax).
