we updated from dhcpd 3.1.0 to 3.1.1 a few days ago ...
(two servers running in failover mode)

two times a restart of the dhcpd failed and produced a log message I
don't understand and I have never seen before:

*** snip ***
Jan 14 16:40:08 ... dhcpd[14609]: segfault at 0000000000841f0f rip
0000000000841f0f rsp 00007ffff38530d8 error 15
*** snap ***

the error occured only on the slave (secondary) server. an a new restart
about seconds after the failure did well.

our dhcp service is serving about 4K fix clients an a number of large
dynamic pools. most of the dhcpd restarts since the software-update
produced no error.

Thankfull for any ideas or suggestions,
