You may get some additional clues if you can find out what is querying
gconfd. What application are you using to manage your networking
configuration? Do you have a DSL modem only, or a combination
modem/router? Is your CentOS box plugged directly into the DSL
device, or are you using wireless or any additional router?
My suspicion would be that either (1) your DSL drops and the log
entries above are from the network management software when it
attempts to restore the connection, e.g. re-obtaining DHCP token; or
(2) the network software itself fails and restarts, which seems less
likely. There are additional possibilities if there's a wifi
