Clients remember their leases.  Ignoring the client-id still gets a
match when the two clients REQUEST their old leases (in INIT-REBOOT

Even expiring the leases won't work - if the client requests it, we'll
pull a lease out of an allocable-state to give to them.

Time, waiting for the clients to forget their leases and return to INIT
state, or having the clients specifically release one or both of their
leases, should work.
