Testing out dhcp 4.1.1 on CentOS 5.4.  Freshly compiled dhcpd.  It appears
using "option slp-service-scope" in a subnet declaration throws dhcpd into
an infinite loop (100% cpu) and the server never actually starts.

Below is a simple dhcpd.conf to test with.  Can anyone confirm this

subnet netmask {
        option routers        ;
        option subnet-mask    ;
        option domain-name "";
        option domain-name-servers,;
        option time-offset              -6;     # Central Standard Time
        option slp-directory-agent true,;
        option slp-service-scope true myscope;
        default-lease-time 18000;
        max-lease-time 43200;
