Sorry to be a pest, but does anyone know what is generating this message 
in my DHCP logs? I found one reference that said it was a debug message, 
but it doesn't make it clear to what client it's referring to. If it is a 
normal DEBUG message, I'm not sure why it's appearing now, and not with my 
previous version of DHCPD.
