It shouldn't.  ez-ipupdate is supposed to save states accross a reboot.

I did not do it in the lab where I set it up.  It was then sent out to a 
remote site.  And if you have adjusted POST aggressively, and boot off a 
fast flash drive, it boots very quickly!  Fast enough that you only loose a 
few packets every few minutes.

It is a new system.  And it passed burn in.  It only started in that 
environment.  Since this started, I have turned off DynDNS, and PPtP to see 
if one of my services is causing this.  So far, no luck.  If I can't solve 
this, I will cross ship another box, and bring this one in to find out what 
is really wrong.
