It actually won't grab a new dhcp lease if you loose connectivity, and I think 
that's what Jonathan asked.

I think networkmanager [0] comes pretty close to what was asked, but 
unfortunately there's no KDE / Kubuntu frontend yet, although [1] sounds 
promising.

Let's put it this way: if you need to ask a lawyer whether what you do is 
"right" or not, you are morally corrupt. Let's not go there. We don't base 
our morality on law. - Linus Torvalds
