The problem is not that this is an alias interface, but that it is a loop=
interface. Currently the ISC DHCP server only runs on broadcast, non-loop=
non-point-to-point interfaces. This will probably be changed in a future
version, but that will probably also not be available this year.

If you are feeling brave, you can try the attached patch (against 3.0.4, =
should apply against 3.0.5b1 also). It is *not* suitable for general use,=
might let you do what you need to do.
