i've got to ask in the first instance....WHY such a low lease time in the first place?

the lease file is your database.... if you just started ring-buffering it you would
lose entries and get corrupted entries. this problem is of your own causing with the
short lease time - you could think about putting the lease file into /dev/shm or such 
ie not on disk - if you dont care about systems keeping their same entry (I'm going to guess
that running out of IP addresses and having no spare addresses is a reason for your
current timers?)
