We had someone's laptop that had previously been registered for
DHCP be given a crippled 35.15 IP address this morning. IPCONFIG
release/renew only got us only another crippled address at first, but
then after about 15 mins (at around 10:30 am) it was successful in
getting an unrestricted IP 35.10 address.
This seems to point to some problem with the campus DHCP service that
got fixed, except it sounds like your problem occurred AFTER ours did.

Two notebook computers in our building had to be re-registered at
dhcp.msu.edu yesterday at approximately noon.
After that, the users were back to work.
