dhcpd: Lease with bogus binding state: 257



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi Folks -

Running dhcpd just for my wireless network.  It has been working okay, 
although it seemed slow to deliver an IP.  Today it is not working at all, I 
look in the /var/log/messages, and I see

Jan  7 12:35:47 backup dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:10:c6:41:d4:d6 via wlan0: 
network 10.0.0.0/24: no free leases

This is mighty surprising since it has many IPs to allocate /etc/dhcpd.conf 
and just one client right now:

            ddns-update-style ad-hoc;

            subnet 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
              range 10.0.0.21 10.0.0.253;
              option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
              option broadcast-address 10.0.0.255;
              option routers 10.0.0.10;
              option domain-name-servers 192.168.0.1;
              option domain-name "home.warmcat.com";
            }

Oh well, maybe I have a couple of hundred hackers parked outside.  So I 
restart dhcpd, but I am surprised to see

service dhcpd restart

The warning is actually okay, I only want to serve leases on wlan0 from this 
machine, not eth0.  Okay, maybe there is junk in the leases file, but I go 
to /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases and it just has the default comment in it.  I 
move even that to a new filename so there is no lease file and the behaviour 
is the same on service restart.

Google shows another guy on FC3 saw the same thing, but it is not useful for a 
result,  I tried Bugzilla and I did not find anything there, but many times I 
failed to find something there that is there.

Any ideas?
