     That's actually exactly what I do, just delete the file.  Static 
IPs are defined in dhcp.conf, not in .leases.  The .leases file just 
gets updated every time there's a connection change.  I have yet to see 
any ill behavior from deleting it.  All the systems on the network will 
at some point renew without a problem.
