Hmm, that's odd.  On my Ubuntu box, I have this line in my dhclient.conf:

send host-name "djibouti";

And it works great.  I don't think there are any drastic differences, but I 
could be wrong.  According to the man page for interfaces, there are the 
options 'hostname' and 'client'  Those seem to indicate that it will request 
an IP with one of those.  You might look into that.
