I am unsure of what this message means exactly but I am receiving the
same error in my log files.  What dhcp client are you using?  Does your
client happen to change IP addresses just after receiving this error? 

We are using a combination of the factory loaded operating system which
performs a dhcp call and runs a bootloader, which loads WinCe then does
another dhcp call.  Every so often the IP address changes to a new IP
address, but it is always after receiving the same error.  I currently
have a ticket open with ISC on this problem, it would be helpful to know
if others are experiencing the same problem, and if they are under the
same or different conditions.
