DHCP gives out same IP address to two clients

hmmm ... 

- Add ignore-client-uids option in the server. This option causes 
the server to not record a client's uid in its lease. This 
violates the specification but may also be useful when a client 
can dual boot using different client ids but the same mac address. 
Thank you to Brian De Wolf for the patch.

After reading that bit again, i'm not sure that it actually does what I said :) It doesn't seem to match your situation where you have two different mac and same UID. In any case ... 4.3.0a1 if you want to test...
