Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bridge-utils

An external machine DHCPing through a local bridge causes the computer
to crash (monitor goes to energy saving mode, unable to recover).  This
only happens after a successful DHCP from the external machine.
(ethernet address removed) My bridge is very simple: eth0 is to the LAN,
eth1 is to the external machine (a Dell laptop with Windows XP)

brctl show
bridge name	bridge id		STP enabled	interfaces
br0		8000.00xxxxxxxxba		no		eth0
