To be honest, I have iptables turned off (at least the init script is 
never started).

I'm thinking this is some kind of bridging rule I need to add?  If memory 
serves, I think there is some iptables rule one has to use under KVM with 
dhcpd.  My hardware is too old to do hardware virtualization - thus I use 
Xen ;)
