ctrace.c error / failover "peer holds all free leases"

running 3.1.2b1

received this message:

ctrace.c(168): trace_write_packet: short write (407:596)

on one of the servers in a failover pair, caused the server to stop running, any ideas what it means?  The other problem is then the primary server started giving "peer holds all free leases" messages.  Our failover has:

    mclt 900;
    split 255;
    load balance max seconds 3;

so the "primary" server should have all leases to hand out if i read the documentation correctly, but turning on "DEBUG_FIND_LEASE" returned:

dhcpd: Not returning a lease.
dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:1c:b3:62:e7:97 via peer holds all free leases

this is after more than 24 hours of the secondary server being down... any one else see this?
