I'm trying to figure out if the problems I'm having with DHCP are on my end
(I'm a client) or on the DHCP server's end. Every 15-30 minutes I'm assigned
a new IP. When I looked through my logs for four months before the problem
started, I noticed I was only assigned a new IP once in all that time before
this started. I contacted my ISP, who verified that was an abnormal frequency
of IP change, and they did fix something which made my computer stop
complaining that someone else was using my IP (that was due to a security
issue with another computer). But I'm still getting a new IP every 15

commit log that sounds as if it would _solve_ problems like this, rather than
start them. Right now I'm running -current from Jan 26, with the same
I don't see a pr on this subject. Is it a known problem, or likely a
