No I hadn't, but I don't think it has anything to do with script, I
think DHCP is sending the wrong data:

Commit: IP: DHCID: 1:ec:8:6b:c:cb:c2 Name: devstation

But, the request shows this:

DHCPREQUEST for from ec:08:6b:0c:cb:c2 (devstation) via

1:ec:8:6b:c:cb:c2 != ec:08:6b:0c:cb:c2

Let me look into this, I could be some time ;-)

It doesn't really matter for the scripts original purpose, but it does
for your purpose.
