It started happening the day of the upgrade (from graphs of the number
of leases) although we only ran out of IPs a couple of days later. Could
be coincidence, but for that to happen to two CMs, from different pools,
at the same time....

Some smi-invalid state change after one machine had been upgraded and the
other wasn't upgraded til 20-30 minutes later?
