Cheers. It's beginning to look like it's the lack of client information from 
the first (initrd *.53) dhcp request that may be the cause. If that's the 
case then I can rule out..

set ddns-rev-name = "";
set ddns-fwd-name = "pi05.swampdog";
client-hostname "pi05";

..and go figure out what how..

uid "\001\270'\353\0172d";
set ddns-txt = "318788caec8944734a9e0c2fe418c9db6f";

..figure in the scheme of things.
