How do I ignore client's option 51?

Hi List,

I have a case where our CPE is choosing smaller lease timeouts with each 
renew and eventually hitting the min lease time I have configured on the 

This is a problem for me as I set my minimum to 30 minutes (default is a 
day), this was to allow me to use the adaptive-lease-time-threshold 
option to drop the lease times if the pool nears capacity.

Is there any way to completely ignore the client's requested lease time? 
Subnet specific would be preferable but a global option won't bother me 
much either.
