[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug in /etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server

I have run across a small bug in the debian isc-dhcp-server package.  Have installed it on the raspberry pi.  Set everything up and it works except for one small item. 

In the /etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server there is a reference to the /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server script that is run on bootup.  As far as I can tell, only the pid file location is read from the isc-dhcp-server.  

I have modified the INTERFACES="eth0" entry in isc-dhcp-server but the change is not taking.  Again, in the script /etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server, there is a reference to $INTERFACES but it is not being read from /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server

After changing INTERFACES="eth0" in /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server and restarting the isc-dhcp-server no change.  Netstat –au still bootps listening on all interfaces

netstat -au

Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State

udp        0      0 *:bootps                *:*

Hope this helps!

If you solve the problem, can you send me the new /etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server script?
