IP changed, then...

I'm behind a NAT, running a Tor node. My ISP will unreasonably change my
IP every 48 hours. Usually Tor runs well, but when my IP changes, I will
get an entry in Tor log like this:
[notice] resolve_my_address(): Your IP seems to have changed. Updating.
[warn] second_elapsed_callback(): Your server (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9001) has
not managed to confirm that its ORPort is reachable. Please check your
firewalls, ports, address, /etc/hosts file, etc.
The "[warn] second_elapsed_callback()..." is added to the log every 20
minutes and will lasts forever. By contrast, if I restart Tor, then it
[notice] Now checking whether ORPort xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9001 is
reachable... (this may take up to 20 minutes -- look for log messages
[notice] router_orport_found_reachable(): Self-testing indicates your
ORPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server
So, should I restart Tor manually every time when my IP changes? In FAQ,
I get an answer said no, but what's wrong here?
