once lease per client is not working

Interesting. If client gets the same IP again and again by enabling one-lease-per-client (besides enabling deny duplicates) then there is another problem described below -
  Once client gets IP address and then if it is rebooted it sends DHCPDISCOVER message (without requesting for previously allocated IP) to DHCP server. The server in-spite of have the info about client ID and MAC in lease file and lease time is not expired, it allocates new IP.
  Am I missing something?

Wrong. One Lease per client means the same Client ID or MAC will not 
reecive more than one IP (if for example there is a RAS client running 
it will not get 10 ips.)
The server will go through loops to make sure the client always recive 
the same IP once it receives it once.
