The only device I have in my lab to test the DHCP over IPsec feature is 
a Fortigate 50B which hasn't had it's firmware updated in some time. I 
will order a 40C model here in the next day or two and try to do some 
additional testing. There are also multiple hoto's posted online that 
reference using the DHCP over IPsec feature of the client, so it could 
be a compatibility issue with specific revisions of newer Fortigate
