I had this happen to me in FC6. It happened at a very crucial time for
me, and I was so pissed I turned it off and never bothered with it
again -- so it's partly my fault as I didn't file a bug.

It basically ignored the IP it got via DHCP, and set it's own
169.*.*.* IP, quite possibly exactly the one you mentioned. There were
no associated error messages, I only noticed this was what was
happening through useful messages to /var/log/messages.
