  1.  I think I have a hypothesis. When dhclient is offered an IP, it attempts to look it up in dhcpd.leases (under /var), and if /var has errors, the lookup fails and says "not found" (which is what the DHCPDECLINE line says in the log).

  3. Now that I think I understand what's happening, what I need to do is to make the server tolerant to such behavior by rate-limiting incoming DHCPDISCOVER packets, which I do not yet know how to do.
