DHCP Failure across a switch

Why won't this switch pass DHCP packets?

Very occasionally I've hit a situation where a switch won't pass DHCP packets properly. You know it is the switch because if you replace only the switch everything starts working again. I've lost one dumb switch to this, and had a 3300XM suffer the same problem -- although once the 3300XM was reset to factory defaults it started working again.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
