Right, but the message indicates a certain 169 address going from one hardware
to another. So it looks like *two* machines per message had the DHCP failure -
but *only* if both machines at whatever time tried to grad the same IP address.
So I don't see anything if a machine happened to pick a different address. Also
I don't see how old the first machine gragged that old address and it could
have gone to a 10.* address in the meantime....
