[Bridge] bridge problem

When I add interfaces to the bridge *after* I have "tcpdump -n -i br0"
running on the bridge,
my tcpdump don't see any communication. If I kill tcpdump and
re-execute it *after* I added
the interface to the bridge, it works just fine.

The same behavior happens with my DHCP server (which listens only on
my bridge interface);
I need to re-execute (reset) it after I add the interface to the bridge.

Is that normal ?

Why does it happen ?

What should I do ?

It's a little awkward to reset my DHCP server every time I add a new
interface to the bridge..
