Package: isc-dhcp-server
Version: 4.1.1-P1-9
Severity: normal

If an interface has a primary IP address (assigned by ifconfig) of 
a secondary IP address assigned by "ip addr add dev" of then the
DHCP server will refuse to start if the subnet is the only one
configured to be served by DHCP.  Version 3.x of the DHCP server supported 
and an upgrade to Testing broke it.
