[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#764259: isc-dhcp-client: ip address answers ping after sending a release

Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.1-1
Severity: normal

When I shut down a machine with jessie, the dhcp server gets a release request.
But then it refuses to release the lease and logs an error that the IP address
answers a ping after sending a release request.  This is GNU/kFreeBSD
10.0-1-amd64 #0 Tue, 20 May 2014 12:47:21 +0100 x86_64 amd64 Intel(R) Core(TM)
i7-2635QM CPU @ 2.00GHz GNU/kFreeBSD running Debian GNU/kFreeBSD testing
(jessie).  This happens every shutdown or reboot.  The machine probably should
not respond to a ping (for whatever reasons) after sending a release request to
the dhcp server.
